Salt Cellar, for the Foodie Contingent

There are a number of items I make as a functional potter aside from the typical mug and bowl.  Among them are butter keepers, egg cups, garlic grate dishes and salt cellars.  I like to call them gifts for the “Foodie Contingent”.

My favorite item which I started making this past January are Salt Cellars.  They are so tiny and elegant.  Here is a photo of them drying on my sun filled work table. (It’s starting to feel like Summer!)  For the finished version check my shop page at

  1. Those little salt cellars are very interesting. Too bad they wouldn’t work here… humidity is too high. I do, however, like the design and the size. Nice shape to them.

  2. I also think they would work fine. If they didn’t a small sachet of dried rice in the bottom would work to keep the moisture down.

    I think they’re very compelling pieces. very attractive! I wanted to reach into the screen to pick one up.

  3. Great salt cellars Lucy. I make those too and living here in the humid South have had no problems. We keep course salt in ours, I don’t know if that makes a difference. I also went over to look at your garlic grating dishes. Very cool!!

  4. Thanks all!
    Cindy, That is so cool you can feel the calmness even in a photo. They really do feel that way. I have a green flow one in my kitchen and just love touching it… and I don’t say that about all my pots!!
    Charles I think they would be too small for the rice idea. I love the way you desccribed wanting to reach into the picture!
    Ron I keep coarse salt in mine too. Did you know there is this whole gourmet salt craze now… there are all sorts of flavored, and smoked salts.
