Product Description

Neolithic Salt+Pepper Shakers

 

I wanted to bring primitive and modern form together in a new but entirely recognizable way.

It's a misnomer to label Neolithic/Paleolithic type objects as primitive. They took skilled crafts-people to develop and make. You'd be hard pressed to make one yourself.

 

What is wonderful about these artifacts from our past is that they are clear human creations - made by human hands for human hands. Holding one and you know it just feels right, it is meant to be held; Objects that were made to be used and crafted to be used for a long time.

I took that historic precedent and thought about something I use every day. As luck would have it, I went to the kitchen and two culinary tools leapt up to me - the ubiquitous salt and pepper shakers. Seen everywhere, used by everyone, but seldom thought about.

Since I knew the form and the look I was going for I started making some designs. I got a real kick out of the fact that I was designing stone age tools with a computer.

I had a few false starts but eventually arrived at a result I liked.

There's something about the chipped stone design with the traditional color choice that informs their use and purpose: these are hand tools for food. I think even one of our ancient ancestors would know that these objects could be picked up - though maybe not their purpose, at least at first.

 

PEPPER

 

The bottom of the shaker uses a Rubber Plug #03 (1/2").  

Contact me and I will send you the plug!
