This ceramic red french salt pig with spoon is a pretty and practical way to keep your kitchen organized. The simple, minimalist design salt cellar in rhubarb red is 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 this salt cellar whenever you need to season your dish.

This salt pig is an original design that I created in 2007 which has been widely copied since then.

I have others in stock if you'll check in my kitchen gadgets section: http://www.etsy.com/shop/BlueSkyPotteryCO?section_id=6938194

I made this on my pottery wheel as a closed-form, egg-shaped item into which I cut a 3.25" hole. This container stands 6" tall x 4.5" across and holds around a cup - maybe more - of salt...or sugar or other herb. On this one I carved in some stars that make a great shadow when the light shines through onto the salt.

Come to think of it, this vessel would be great for holding bath salts, too. Wouldn't this look sweet in your bathroom?

I glazed it in a glossy fire engine red. The handmade matching spoon is included.
Dishwasher safe.

I signed it on the bottom rim.

If you'd like a gift card enclosed with this item, leave me the wording in the notes to seller and I'll be sure to include it for you.

Frequently asked questions about BlueSkyPotteryCO

If I feel I can make something custom for you in a style, design and glaze that I have tested and perfected, I'm happy to consider custom and personalized orders. Please know that there is generally an added charge for this and it may take six weeks or more to complete.
Because all of my pottery is made one at a time, there will be variations in size, even when you purchase a set of two or more pieces. Generally these are maybe 1/4 to 1/2 inch in difference and a couple ounces in volume at times.
I use a very durable stoneware clay for my pottery, making it able to withstand continued, everyday use. Unless stated otherwise in the description, you can use my pottery in your oven, microwave and dishwasher.
It is very difficult to gift wrap your pottery since I need to make sure it has lots of bubblewrap and peanuts surrounding it so it arrives intact. However, I am very happy to tie a ribbon around the packing material and to include a hand written card with a message from you inside the box. Just leave me the wording in your Note to Seller at check out.
I do sell my work wholesale to gift shops and galleries. Please contact me for minimum order and pricing information. My phone is: 970-846-9349 and my email is deb@blueskypottery.com

I also have a watercolor shop here on etsy and would love to be represented by a gallery for that work. You can see it at: BlueSkyFineArt.etsy.com
