What a sweet and whimsical and practical way to keep your cooking area orderly yet handy.
These salt holders or handmade ceramic salt pigs are designed to be filled with kosher salt or any favorite herb or spice and left on the counter top where you do your cooking. Reach in with your fingers or use the little spoon that I made to go with each french salt pig whenever you need to season your dish. (Works great as a sugar bowl, too.)
I make these salt keepers on my pottery wheel as a closed-form, egg-shaped item into which I cut a 3.25" hole. They measure around 5" tall x 4" across and hold around a cup of salt...or sugar or other herb.
This listing is one salt pig in the color of your choice. Chances are, I have the color you want in stock, but if not, it'll take me a few weeks to complete one for you. This salt pig is an original design that I created in 2007 which has been widely copied since then.
The photo above is a stock photo and the exact pieces shown there might not be available. If you want to see the exact salt pig you'll be receiving, please choose from my listings with individual pieces.
