About this Product

To improve the product quality, the model is printed in two parts and is then sintered together before glazing. You will get a perfectly seamless one-piece shaker, like shown in the pictures.

Looking simple - but getting it right was tricky.
Because designing a salt and pepper shaker for Shapeways has two big constraints: the design rules for hollowed ceramics demand an opening with a diameter of at least 10mm - but there is no food safe material available on Shapeways to make a plug for this hole. So we had to come up wih a one-piece plugless solution:
This shaker is conveniently filled from the top, through it's big funnel-shaped opening. Obviously nobody wants all of the stuff to fall out again when using the shaker. We created a really simple but effective retaining system that lets the shaker be filled easily but keeps the condiment inside when you turn the shaker upside down. Only a pinch of condiment will leave the shaker when shaking it slightly, just like it should be.
