Libby Ballard - Salt Pig (Grey)

Salt Pig (Grey)

Ceramic
9 x 8.5 cms

Sold

A beautiful tactile salt pig perfect for some home cooking and looking stylish in your kitchen.

Each piece is hand-thrown on the potters wheel and trimmed with a rounded base. When the pots are still damp they are pushed at an angle onto the surface so that each salt pig will sit either with a tilt or upright making it perfect to hold the salt but also scoop it out easily.

The inside and rim are glazed in a choice of 3 glazes, shiny white, shiny grey or a satin matt blue. The outside is left unglazed so that you have a lovely contrast of textures.

The spoons are made by local Bristol maker; Will Priestly Woodcraft. Will is a green woodworker which means using fresh wood rather than seasoned. Each spoon is carved by hand with an axe and knives using traditional techniques. All the wood Will uses in his work is from local conservation projects foraging his own wood and knowing that the trees have been felled ethically and sustainably. For this batch of salt pig spoons he has used sycamore off cuts of his larger pieces from Arnos Vale Cemetery in Bristol.
