From salt and pepper cellars to elevated mise en place, from olives or cornichons for noshing to butter or jam for brunching, for catching rings to safely holding your smoking sage bundle or palo santo, these exquisite handmade porcelain pinch pots prove that you can never have too many of small, elegant bowls.
Seriously durable and designed for everyday use, these pieces are fully finished with an extremely hard, high-gloss clear glaze. The almost luminous soft white color? That's the all-natural hue of the porcelain itself. It woke up like this.
About John Julian: Hand thrown, fettled (a word we love-it's when a piece of porcelain is smooth finished by hand using a knife and a sponge before going into the kiln), glazed, and fired at exceptionally high temperatures, John Julian's simple, beautiful porcelain is lovingly made to last in a small workshop in Wiltshire, England. Designed by artist + sculptor Julian Sainsbury, these silhouettes recall the classic elegant-workmanlike shapes that have been gracing English kitchens and tables for hundreds of years. Contrary to popular belief, porcelain is not fussy. Go ahead and put it in the dishwasher or pop it in the microwave. Rejoice!
