This is one of my hallmark pieces. I have been making mortar and pestles since I was in college in the ceramics program at Metropolitan State College. This is a small mortar & pestle, wheel thrown from porcelain and groved inside with a ceramics tool and bisque fired.

Once the mortar part is bisque fired, the inside is sanded lightly to prevent pieces of clay from flaking off. The inside is then waxed and the mortar piece glazed. The pestle or grinder is not glazed but is also high fired along with the glazed mortar pieces. All of my ceramic work is electric kiln fired to 2200 F, which makes the pieces very durable stoneware.

This gorgeous mortar & pestle is glazed in Robins Egg Blue, which is a light bluish green and sometimes has specks in the color.

The width across the bowl is 4 1/4 inches and the height on the outside 1 5/8 inches tall, while the inside depth is 1 inch. On the inside bottom, the glaze has a very pretty splash of light green color.

It is recomended to clean the inside groved part with dish soap and an old toothbrush. The groved inside makes for a wonderful surface to grip your herbs and make it easier to brake down herb parts to make teas, candles, incense, tinctures, or for cooking herbs.

This design is very strong and sturdy. I have been making this style of mortar & pestle from the very beginning (since I graduated in 1996 with my BFA in Ceramics) and have had very happy customers who can attest to the durability and life of this tool.

Thank you for visiting my shop!
