The sleek Glass and Oak Mortar and Pestle started as a story – Israeli designer Shira Keret begins by writing a poem about the object she envisions before translating the rich emotive into a tangible form.
Each Glass and Oak Mortar and Pestle is handmade by Shira Keret herself. The pestle is of strong tinted glass, the mortar is solid oak and large enough to serve as a convenient cutting board.
We’d give up the electric food processor for a gorgeous Keret mortar and pestle any day. We love how such an inherently functional food prep tool can become an expressive, personal object of art in the hands of an innovative modern designer.
