Pinch of Salt by Craighton Berman

Kosher salt– an additive-free salt with a flaky texture and a clean flavor– is typically kept in a large open vessel next to the cooktop, known as a salt cellar. A cook dips their fingers into the salt cellar and pinches a portion for use. This direct interaction with the salt is the impetus for the design of Pinch.

Pinch is a slipcast porcelain salt and pepper set which brings the experience of adding ‘a pinch of salt’ to the dining table. The bottom vessel is filled with Kosher salt and acts as a tabletop salt cellar, and the top sphere is a traditional pepper shaker, filled through a corked opening in the bottom. The curved opening in the cellar accepts the shaker, which acts as a cover when not in use. The act of ‘closing’ Pinch results in the satisfying slide of two pieces of ceramic against each other–a viscerally pleasing interaction that is reminiscent of using a ceramic mortar and pestle.

    additional tax assessment or audit. There exist also some job websites that specialize only in accounting vacancies that can be of great chance in the specific situation. This can eventually lead them to
    the courts, which would spend them a lot more instead of just hiring a team of financial experts, professionals who would work hard to give them the business reports, analysis
    and assessments they need.
