Confluence looks so vast. Layers of birch plywood undulating over a rich landscape of smooth canyons and swirling colors carved especially to transport your wildest dreams and...your teapot. Zoom out. A little more. Oh. It's a tea tray.
Still a visual trip and pretty cool for a drink carrier, though I'd probably be slightly more approving of Confluence's $1,700 price tag if it held something more useful. Like a bottle of Gran Patron Burdeos Tequila, 4 salted shot glasses, and a pile of limes. Artonomos' 100-piece edition of the wooden trays serve up to 6 people, with designated topo valleys for cups and a teapot. The terrain also features a large central reservoir for collecting dribbled tea and pooling it into a miniature English Breakfast lake.
Confluence topographic tea trays have been processed on both top and bottom, so the underside presents a similar artistic landscape.
