A Beautiful Grind

Turned Hardwood Salt & Pepper Mills Made in Los Angeles (LEO Design)

We’ve just received a shipment of stylish and practical salt and pepper grinders, hand-turned in Los Angeles.  Made of white oak (for the salt) and black walnut (for the pepper), both shakers are fitted with a precision grinding mechanism—stainless steel for the pepper and an industrial grade ceramic mechanism for the salt (since salt and metal are not a prudent combination).

Pictured above (in the foreground), a rather voluptuous pair—which brings to (my) mind the saucy maid, Despina (from Mozart’s Cosi fan Tutti).  Also available (pictured in the background), a pair topped with onion domes—or bishops’ mitres.

Please click on the photo above to learn more about (or to buy) them.
