Salt Pig

Salt pigs are a great way of storing your kitchen salt - keep it next to your cooker for convenient access.

We took a traditional Lombok earthenware water jar and tilted it on its side, making sure it was well-weighted, to create this salt pig.

Earthenware clay naturally absorbs moisture, keeping the salt dry. The shape of the jar also helps protect it from dust, with the opening big enough for your hand, or a spoon (not included).

Lombok Pottery products are hand-formed from red earthenware clay. They are burnished with a hard object to smoothen and polish. Following the firing process the pottery is skilfully pulled out while still hot using iron tongs and sprayed with natural tamarind extract which fuses with the clay to create the reddish, speckled finish.

As they are hand-formed and coloured no two items are the same and variations in the size, colour and finish may occur. The natural oils from the rice bran or small patches of natural earthenware brown may show through - this often adds to the attractiveness of the product.

Microwave and oven safe.

Kartimarket has had a long term partnership with the Lombok Pottery Centre for a number of years and we visit them to hand-pick products and collaborate to design & develop new ones. The products are imported directly to the UK.
