Mori Kougei’s Poke collection utilises the tsuki-ita technique, where sheets of wood just a fraction of a millimetre thick are carved and reassembled to form decorative inlaid surfaces. The results vary in colour and grain to reflect the character and environment of the wood at hand, and are detailed with finely illustrated patterns of all shapes and sizes – from clean-lined parallelograms to sprawling butterflies.

Mori Kougei

Since 1953, Tokushima-based Mori Kougei has been specialising in tsuki-ita, a highly complex technique in which paper-thin sheets of wood are sliced with sharp blades before being bonded together to form intricate surface patterns. This meticulous process has been refined and passed through the generations for more than 70 years. The result is a selection of functional trays highlighting the grain, colour and character of different wood species. Expect meticulously indigo-dyed pieces – a treasured Tokushima art – and subtle, contemporary scenes inspired by art, geometry and nature.
