Brass Pot Stand Star
These brass trivets conjure up images of stars and galaxies, the brass is bright and shiny and will naturally and beautifully oxidize with use. The brass pot trivets are produced by Japanese company Futagami, who have been forging brass for over a century.
Futagami is located in Toyama – Takaoka City, a city known for its brass statues. it is one of the oldest Brass casting companies in Japan. Masanori Oji joined a workshop at Futagami to learn more about the process of casting brass after he had the idea to design a brass bottle opener. Upon completion of the workshop Masanori proposed to design a line of living wares for Futagami. The collection won an award from “Interior Lifestyle Tokyo” later that year.
Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc. Masanori Oji’s brass products are produced using the “sand cast” technique, a raw form of casting that leaves a unique sand-like texture on the surface. Some of the products are then polished or hammered depending on the desired texture.
