This pouty pair of lions is just waiting to grace your table with their attitude and style — you get to decide who is the salty one and who is extra spicy!

Each lion was formed and shaped by hand, starting with basic pinch pots. Their faces are comprised of thin slabs impressed with the same small, oval vintage doily— the lioness had her "mane" removed. Their facial features were pinched and shaped by hand and applied using the score and slip method. The same is true for their tails. Two different tan glazes were used for their overall finish: one that "breaks" throughout the doily texture and a base color that was brushed onto their bodies. Pink and black underglazes were used for their eyes and noses with clear gloss applied over top. Each cat has a secure, yet removable, red rubber stopper in their undercarriage to keep their contents neatly housed inside. Finger "indents" were pressed into the lions' soft clay bodies for a better, more ergonomic grip when shaking.


Linus and Liesel are a meticulously handcrafted pair that are sure to make anyone smile, whether or not you are a Leo. They are a one of a kind set with neutral coloring, but lots of character and personality.

This set is intended for fine, ground, dry spices only. Hand wash and allow to dry thoroughly and completely before filling. This set was vitrified to cone 6 temperature in an electric kiln.

Linus (the lion) sits on an oval base of 2 X 2.25 inches and stands 3.75 inches tall. Leisel (the lioness) sits on an oval base of 1.75 X 2 inches and stands 3 inches tall.
