This well-formed and sturdy stoneware pestle and mortar has been hand thrown in Cornwall by Leach Pottery. These artisan pots are designed for everyday use and are perfect for grinding your own heady spices and yummy pesto. This will make an ideal gift for food lovers.
Glazed in Dolomite with a beautiful hint of blue that contrasts with the raw clay lip. Tactile, well-made, and rather special, this is a must-have for any kitchen.
The bottom of the jug is left unglazed, so the earthy finish won't slip and slide as you eat or serve.
Pestle: L 14cm x D 3.5cm
Mortar: H 7cm x D 13cm
We recommend hand-washing our pots to reduce the chance of long-term fading.
