Mortar Bowls in Black


These mortars are made by Motoshige, a small potter in Japan that specializes in ceramic mortars are the perfect for crushing nuts, spices, making dresses, even guacamole.

They are large enough you can use it as a traditional mortar and then add ingredients to make your favorite dressings and sauces.  There is a pouring spout so after you are done the bowls are pretty enough to use it for serving.

The small grooves make is ideal for grinding, but they are glazed so not to leave an odor.
