I hand-built these Taos Salt n Pepper Shakers from stoneware clay. First, I created a template for the size and shape of my design. I wanted the shakers to fit ergonomically in the hand. Next, I rolled clay through my slab roller. I cut out the pattern and assembled the parts. Finally, I cut a hole in the floor to accommodate the rubber plug and pierce the tops for the shaker holes. Taos salt n pepper shakers are work intensive!
Shake out your favorite seasonings, salt and pepper. Or perhaps green and red chili powder. Hmmm.
