Solid Wood Salt Cellars & Floral Tea Strainer
As the experience of sharing meals together as a family or group becomes more of a scarcity and a special event, the objects in a place setting too should reflect the importance of the moments spent together. I have created a small collection of individual salt and spice cellars, and an individual tea strainer. Each of these objects celebrates the importance of sharing a meal and experiences collectively. These pieces serve to elevate the experience by emphasizing the ceremonial, functional, and traditional serving objects, in a contemporary context.
