This salt pig sold recently but another is in production and will be ready for shipping around Feb. 4.
This handmade emerald green salt pig or salt holder or french salt pig 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. (Works great as a sugar bowl, too.)
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 4" tall x 3.5" across and holds around a cup of salt...or sugar or other herb.
I glazed it in a gorgeous green. The handmade matching spoon is included.
If you check in my kitchen gadgets section, you will find more of these salt pigs in a variety of glaze colors. http://www.etsy.com/shop/BlueSkyPotteryCO?section_id=6938194
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.

Thank you for stopping by! All the pottery in my shop was made by me either on my pottery wheel or handmade. I make almost all my own glazes, and they are food safe and can be used in the oven, microwave or dishwasher unless the description says otherwise. However, as with any handmade pottery, it will retain its fresh good looks longer with handwashing and limited microwave use. I accept custom orders and will sell wholesale to galleries/shops....please contact me for information.
