Ita (Round Tray)

This reproduction of ita by a renowned artisan of the Meiji and Taisho period, Utorentoku Kaizawa (1862-1914), was carved by his great-grandson, Toru Kaizawa, who is a contemporary master wood-carver. The patterns carved on katsura wood are soft, and each scale has a roundness that gives the pattern a smooth flow like real scales.
