Black Motoshige Mortar

Regular price $24 Unit price  per 

Description:  
This ceramic mortar bowl is both functional and beautiful. Made out of traditional Iwami Glay, the bowl is scored in such a way to bring ingredients to the center of the bowl while mixed. This efficient design saves time and strength while mixing. The silicon base of this mortar bowl prevents the bowl from moving around while in use. Perfect for crushing nuts and seeds, making salad dressing, grinding herbs or spice mixes, and even making guacamole in the larger sizes. Beautiful as a serving vessel once your grinding is complete!

Variation: 

Due to the natural material of the clay, there may be slight variations.
