Togetherness Tray by Tiffany Saw
Traditionally, the togetherness tray is used to offer candies and treats as a way to open the new year full of sweet abundance. This ritual auspicious offering is grounded in the tray itself. The division of six dishes signifies good fortune for the new year, while the round shape of the vessel represents the fullness and bounty that the new year will hold.
W.O.W.’s togetherness tray, designed by Tiffany Saw, features a beautifully hand-carved porcelain cover full of auspicious peaches and heavenly bats. We envision the tray’s small dishes being used to hold everyday spices, snacks, and nuts to continue centering the importance of sharing space and gathering in your home even beyond the festive time of Lunar New Year.
The Togetherness Tray Bundle includes the Togetherness Tray, the Porcelain as Expression zine (retails $50), and a motif-stamped tea towel by Gentle Oriental.
