Mortar and Pestle, Both Beautiful and Useful

Could I be so bold as to say that I think that I may be back on track? I will tread carefully with that thought.

While many people walk into our spot at the Farmers Market we often hear the comment “they are so beautiful”, and yes I do have to say that Steve’s work is beautiful but in today’s world can we all afford beautiful and not useful? Not many of us can or would care to. This is one of the aspects that I so enjoy about Steve’s pieces. They are beautiful and useful all at the same time. Spoons are meant to be stirred with and sipped from. Bowls are made to hold trinkets, salads, fruit and much more.
#449 Ash Mortar & Pestle
We try to fulfill requests as much as we can, but not usually as quickly as we would like. One such wish that we received this past summer was for Mortar & Pestle sets. Early this month the need was filled with the supply and the first, a smooth, sleek Walnut one came from the studio and was quickly sold. A few more were turned from Ash, Oak and Sapele and are currently available from us. I have to say, and have heard from others, that one of the neat things about our Mortar & Pestle is the way that the Pestle can rest in the two top grooves of the Mortar when it is not being used. So what are you waiting for? Don’t you deserve a “beautiful and yet useful” gift of our new Mortar & Pestle sets? See you at the market soon, but if you can’t make it there remember that we ship throughout the USA.

Until next we meet…
