Hakusan Sue Porcelain Pebble Salt Shaker

Ceramic condiment container

If there's one thing everyone knows about salt and pepper shakers is that they must be upright. This way they are easier to use and store, right? Well, not really, say the designers of Hakusan Toki from Hasami in Nagasaki, one of the top ceramics makers in a town famous for pottery. They offer the Hakusan Sue Porcelain Pebble Salt Shaker as the proof: a salt shaker with a flat, horizontal shape that changes the way you think about something even as everyday as a salt shaker!

The choice of the shape for the Hakusan Sue Porcelain Pebble Salt Shaker wasn't random: Hakusan's designers wanted to evoke the idea of a pebble found near a river. And this is why they offer it in three subdued, stony colors (gray, dark blue, and white). Large enough to sit well in your palm (7.5 x 6.5 x 4 cm / 3 x 2.6 x 1.6"), light yet still firm (80 g / 2.8 oz), and with the refill hole nicely hidden on the bottom, this item brings a touch of classic Asian pottery and modern Japanese design to your table!
