I’ve been toying with making salt and pepper shakers for a couple years now and never came up with much that I was pleased with. Recently, I was inspired by fellow Etsy Mud Team member, Keith Phillips article in Pottery Making Illustrated.
These shakers are a little different from normal salt shakers as the bottom has a cone projecting into the shaker with a hole near the top. You pour salt in the cone like a funnel and into the shaker, flip it over and shake it so the salt sprinkles out the bottom.
Keith makes his more cylindrical, but I wanted to try a round version and may then try different shapes later. I’m more please with these, than any of my previous attempts. Definitely will keep working on it and hopefully get to something I make on a regular basis.
Have a great weekend.
