Pinch Ceramic Salt Cellar
Pinch is a ceramic salt cellar and pepper shaker set that brings the experience of adding 'a pinch of salt' to the dining table.
Pinch is ideal for sea salt or Kosher salt, which is loved by cooks for its ability to draw flavors out of foods. Typically a chef keeps a large vessel of salt—known as a cellar—next to the stove, and intuitively pinches portions for their works-in-progress. This direct interaction with the salt was the inspiration for the design of Pinch.
Pinch brings the salt cellar from the stovetop to the dining table. The bottom vessel holds a portion of sea salt, and the top sphere is a traditional pepper shaker, which acts as a cover for the cellar when not in use. The act of 'closing' Pinch results in the satisfying slide of two pieces of ceramic against each other—a viscerally pleasing interaction that is reminiscent of using a ceramic mortar and pestle.
