Valerie Objects Salt and Pepper mortar and pestle
The mortar and pestle by the duo knutson+ballouhey is taking the proces of cocking back to basics. They combine minimalism with the aesthetics of the Stone Age - as initiated in the simple rough-shaped grinder consisting of a grinding ball that rolls in a preconceived circular trench. While the grinder looks like it's been beaten out of solid rock it is actually made of cast iron protected by diazotization agains corrosion.
