Mortar and Pestle
This functional kitchen art is by an artisan couple who are proficient in both pottery and glass blowing. The result is this stylish yet practical kitchen tool. The broad shallow bowl is perfect for small kitchen tasks, such as crushing garlic or spices and it's matte interior supplies the grip. The ceramic portion is made of rough dark clay, and fits comfortably in the palm to easily get some muscle into the task at hand. A splash of coloured glaze is the artist's signature mark.
The bowl is an approx. 6" diameter, 3 1/2" tall.
