Large Ball Pestle and Bowl Mortar


Loved by foodies and chefs alike, the John Julian Porcelain Pestle and Bowl Mortar has also been named as one of ‘The decade’s design classics’, by The Sunday Times.
The sculptural simplicity combined with the functionality of the generously sized deep bowl mortar make it a real pleasure to use. Particularly suited to grinding spices, pastes, sauces and pestos. For best results, use the pestle with a rocking motion.

Porcelain is an incredibly durable material and makes an ideal material for pestle and mortars.

Please note these pieces are individually hand made, there may be some slight variation in size and detail.

The Porcelain Ball Pestle & Bowl Mortar is often made to order.

They are easily cleaned in soapy water with a soft cloth or sponge.

  • Both Mortar and Pestle are hand thrown individually
  • Mortar: Approximately 23cm wide x 6cm high x 4.5cm deep
  • Pestle: 12cm high
More Details
Nigel Slater uses an early version of our large porcelain Ball Pestle and Bowl Mortar which he first bought from John Julian as a one-off piece. Our new Bowl Pestle and Mortar has been redesigned from this one-off original. As each piece is made by hand there will sometimes be some slight variation in colour and size, but we see this as part of their individual character and charm.
