Porcelain Flat Mortar with Ball Pestle - Large - Seconds

Celebrating the Imperfect

Sometimes a firing will produce products that don't match up to our exacting standards and we class these as Seconds. There may be a slight crack in the glaze on the base, the decoration may be a bit off centre or there could be tiny marks or bumps in the glaze. Alternatively the finish or sizes may differ from the current piece in the range. We can assure you, these are not structural and won't affect your product.

Nigel Slater uses our large Ball Flat Pestle & Mortar, which he first bought from John Julian as a one-off piece. This design classic has since become a cornerstone of our range.

The unique sculptural shape is hand-thrown, and the unglazed vitrified finish make it a real tactile pleasure to use. It has a shallow mortar, adapted for better grinding and paste making. For best results, use the pestle with a rocking motion. Please note these pieces are individually hand made, there may be some slight variation in size and detail.

"I have the most perfect John Julian pestle & mortar, a flat one for grinding that I use all the time". Nigel Slater
