Kitchen tools are definitely some of the most mischievous items in the home - and it is also a room in the house that is likely to accumulate many objects - be careful not to neglect any! Here we have the salt pot and spoon, a pair who like to be involved in the cooking...

Hugely influenced by the animism found in the Japanese Shinto religion and in particular the documentation of tool yōkai (tsukumogami) in both ancient and modern Japanese folklore, I see the spirit in almost everything; both living and inanimate. My love of the objects around me has led me to try and make some of them in clay; sometimes showing the personalities I always imagine them to have.

Rolled slabs of porcelain are cut out and formed, then left to dry in racks with boards to keep them flat whilst regularly checked and 'aired'. They must be handled minimally at the unfired stage as porcelain does not like to be moved whilst drying. Decorated with cobalt oxide before the biscuit (first) firing, then different glazes are applied before firing for a second time. Stamped on the reverse with a little bear head stamp.
This pair has plate hangers attached for easy wall hanging, which can be removed by soaking in hot water if desired.
Approximate dimensions:
Salt pot: 13cm x 9.5cm
Spoon: 23cm x 6cm

ARTIST'S NOTE: As with most of the things I make, my ceramic pieces retain the look of being handmade and this is a part of their charm. My slab pieces sometimes retain my finger marks or other indentations on the reverse, as well as often retaining the texture of my rolling surface. Please make sure you consult the pictures carefully and that you are happy with the piece before purchasing.
