John Julian flat mortar and ball pestle 23cm
We have always admired Julian Sainsbury's sculptural yet wonderfully functional pottery and are pleased to re-introduce his distinct pestle and mortar, handmade by a small team at the recently established John Julian Design workshops in the countryside at Burcombe in Wiltshire.
Sculptor and designer Julian Sainsbury set up John Julian Design in 2000 with an exhibition at the renowned EGG shop in Knightsbridge, London. His distinctive design style is that of Classical but utilitarian with a purity derived from functionality. In 2013 frustrated with the restrictions of other manufacturers he set up his own workshop in Wiltshire to manufacture his work, which allowed him to inject more character to each piece through the hand crafted process.
