Welcome to Centered Ceramics, the home of The Salt Covenant, a unique and useful alternative to the more traditional unity ceremony.

The Salt Covenant is a functional work of art that will hold great meaning to the bride and groom. They can also be given as wedding gifts and anniversary gifts.

During ancient times, agreements and promises were sealed by a salt covenant. Each person would take a pinch of salt from their pouch and place it in the pouch of the other. This agreement could not be broken unless an individual could retrieve their own grains of salt. But this, of course, is impossible.

This raku-fired salt egg has been especially made to create a salt covenant with your spouse in the beginning of your new life together.

Both spouses should take a bag of salt and combine the the two bags inside the egg.This a bond that can not be broken... as is a symbol of an unbreakable promise of love."

After the Covenant has been made it is then used daily as a salt cellar that sits on the kitchen counter. When it empties, couples can fill it together to remember their promise to one another.

One of the best parts about salt covenants is that they can fit in every wedding ceremony with out offending anyone, salt covenants have ties to many different religions and backgrounds.
