Crafted, welded, and finished by hand from solid bronze with removable high-polished stainless steel dishes – this Passover Seder Tray is designed to be a contemporary heirloom piece that can be be used year round for food service or as a display piece for the home.
This Seder Tray physically elevates the foods that are showcased during the traditional Passover seder.
Made from a single sheet of bronze, the modern form of the Seder Tray echoes the parting of the seas - the central miracle in the Passover story.
The stainless steel dishes can be passed around the table in order to distribute the displayed foods to participants in the Passover seder.
“This Seder Tray has has an industrial appeal but also exudes a sense of luxury” explains the designer Lizzie Katz. “The industrial appeal comes from the generous use of quality mixed metals. And it feels luxurious because it bears the marks of hand craftsmanship, so uncommon and refreshing now days.”
Why bronze and stainless steel? Katz explains that “this uncommon combination of metals is beautiful and relatively low maintenance.”
“People in my generation are not interested in polishing silver. Stainless steel is an industrial and beautiful alternative.”
And as for the material choice of bronze, which is conventionally associated with sculpture; “it is hypnotic and helps in my mission to design useful objects that are elevated to the status of art.”
