Designed to show off the natural beauty of the ebony wood from which they are made is the Ink and Wash collection of card cases, lamps, rulers, and paperweights by designers Jerry Huang and Eva Zhou who go by the name E-Y Products. Ebony is considered a rare wood commercially and is often used in the manufacture of musical instruments and fine furniture. Here, the designers were inspired by the forms apparent in the black and yellow, irregular shape of each recycled ebony wood offcut which, to their eyes, resembled traditional Chinese ink-and-wash paintings. The wood was carefully honed to show the grain and set in a lightly inked resin in a silicone form. Air bubbles created naturally during the manufacturing process add to the effect and no two pieces are alike.

The card case has a built-in slot which holds the cards firmly in place and a U-shape design that makes it easier to pull them out. Convenient and beautiful, it can hold business cards at once. The irregular piece of ebony scrap used to make the ruler is balanced with the resin, taking the shape of a mountain landscape, whereas the dense wood of the circular lamp in its brass holder when illuminated from the rear against the transparent resin, creates an image of mountains, creeks, and clouds.
