We love functional beauty, and whether you know it or not, you need one of these! There's a reason they've been around since ancient times. They're incredibly functional in the kitchen. We use them for quickly chopping nuts, , grinding whole spices into intensely flavorful powders, and making quick dips and pastes. Probably the single most favorite use is to mash garlic (Pounding it is fun, and no garlic fingers!). Add a bit of salt and oil and you've got yourself a nice little bread dip that can transtion right to the table.


We won't even get into all of the uses in the apothecary kitchen...


Handmade by local ceranic artist Stephanie Maher of SMM Ceramics, and designed to be used over and over again, thiese beauties deserve a place on your countertop. They also make a pretty great gift for some of those really hard to buy for people on your lists.


Each one is unique and colors will vary slightly, but we promise they are all beautiful. Food-safe, of course, but also microwave and dishwasher safe.
