Confluence is a small wooden tea tray that serves up to 6 persons. It is carved out of Birch plywood, creating a beautiful landscape like form. It has been processed on both sides such that a thin layer of undulating form remains. The layers of the ply accentuates the undulating form through their alternating dark and light seams. A large central reservoir is created by the landscape. Excess tea will naturally flow towards the reservoir and form a miniature lake. As the tea gathers, the level gradually rises just like a lake does when it rains.
