This ceramic salt shaker is handmade by Latvian pottery artist Dace Virsniece. The pottery artist has an amazing talent for combining contemporary with traditional. The ornament on the salt shaker is a slightly modernized version of an ancient technique called “iedobīšu tehnika”, which was widely used in the region of Europe know today as Latvia to decorate various type of dishes and other products. Although, this product itself is a piece of art and a great example of craftsmanship, it may be also very practical to use in your everyday life.
The pepper and salt shakers are our bestselling pieces from the artist’s collection “White”. They can be used as salt and pepper shakers daily or use for Easter time or simply for decorative purpose.
You can also complement your table’s serving setting with other pieces of the collection such as honey/jam serving dishes with lid, bowls of various sizes, and cups, which are so universal that can be used either to drink your favourite tea or coffee, as décor or vase for flowers or even as a pencil holder.
