Salt Cellars from Blackcreek Mercantile

Alexa Hotz October 16, 2012

Woodworker Josh Vogel and ceramicist Ayumi Horie were neighbors in the Hudson Valley for years, but it wasn't until recently, after Horie moved back to her home state of Maine, that the two collaborated on a project.

Available starting today, the Salt Cellars depict Maine animals etched onto porcelain by Horie with domed cherry wood lids. The carefully shaped lids were made by Vogel, of Blackcreek Mercantile and Trading Co. and the cellars are available through Studio KotoKoto (an term loosely meaning "gentle simmering" in Japanese), who offer distinctive objects by Japanese and US artists.

Above: The Salt Cellars are $150 each from Studio KotoKoto.

Above: The Chickadee Salt Cellar; $150 from Studio KotoKoto; currently sold out, but contact Studio KotoKoto.

Above: Ayumi's signature on the bottom of the cellar and the underside of the cherry wood lid.

Above: A look at the cellars on offer; one features both blue and red etchings.
