Utilitarian, yet elegant and classic, the Vanilla Stone mortar and pestle is an indispensable item in your kitchen or on your table. It can lightly crush coriander seeds for Turkish flat-breads, amalgamate garlic and olive oil for bruschetta, or crack black pepper for the perfect blend between coarse and fine. It is equally at home whipping up a Gremolata or crushing lemon grass stalks.A soft, warm antique white glaze covers the mortar completely, while the pestle is glazed on the bottom half only, protecting the clay from staining due to strong colours such as those found in spices like paprika or turmeric, and at the same time enhancing the feeling of the natural porcelain against your hand.It is entirely at home anywhere, in any setting, be it for rustic and delicious or sophisticated and scrumptious. It is completely functional, and has an ergonomic, simple, modern design, which nestles perfectly in the palm of your hand. It can be placed on the table as part of table decor, or in pride of place in your kitchen.Please note that all glazes are made in my studio. They contain the softest, merest hints of colour. Should you prefer a whisper of green, or swirl of blue, or simply a memory of cloud white, please feel free to ask. I aim to please! Bear in mind that each piece is handcrafted and distinctively unique, and size and shape may vary somewhat from piece to piece. Also, any superficial imperfections (such as glaze swirls) are simply what make each item exceptional. My porcelain body fires a soft, warm vanilla white, and as is typical to porcelain, is as durable and timeless as stone. Your mortar and pestle should last you for years to come. Due to the handmade nature of all Vanilla Stone Earthware, a gentle hand wash is recommended.All Vanilla Stone studio work is stamped with my studio stamp, and signed on request. © 2013
