Black and White Mills (short with olivewood tops)

Wednesday, October 7, 2009

This set is made to order. I will make every effort to create them as soon as possible, however delivery right now will be about five weeks because of the wonderful response my mills received at the Smithsonian Craft Show!
As they are individually hand made there may be slight variations in color and shape from the photo.

The mills are 5 1/2" tall.
You can also order these mills in the taller 6 1/2" height for $190.

I have been making mills for over 10 years. This particular set is one of my classic designs - simple, elegant mills combining black and white carved bodies with beautiful olivewood tops.

I turned and carved the bases of these mills out of English sycamore or maple. The texture of the carving makes it easy to grip, even with wet hands. The white salt mill is colored with acrylic paint and rubbed back, and the black pepper mill has been scorched and airbrushed black. The tops have been turned and wire brushed to give them a lovely satin texture. The brass knobs also have a soft brushed finish. Both mills have a durable, food safe, environmentally friendly finish, that can be wiped clean with a damp cloth.

Both mills features a durable ceramic fully adjustable grinding mechanism. The mechanism produces unmatched consistency in grind while requiring only a slight twist to produce a significant amount of fresh, aromatic pepper or salt. The ceramic mechanism also means that any possible salt corrosion is avoided.

These mills would be a beautiful addition to your dining table or kitchen. They also make a wonderful wedding gift.
