Boi and Gul Shakers - Pair
This ceramic salt and pepper shaker set celebrates the pairing of seasonings and makes for an incredible gifting option. Modern and sleek, it has been crafted by artisans from Jaipur and celebrates pottery at its finest. Ceramic craft is a relationship between hands and clay. A mix of clay and minerals is kneaded well till the potter is happy with the consistency, and then sun-dried to remove all moisture. Using the mix, the artisan then creates magic on his wheel with his hands, giving it a shape that is an outcome of his imagination and expertise. The offering is then fired at high temperatures till it hardens. A layer of polish or paint is finally applied to the creation, giving it a brand-new identity after its metamorphosis from humble clay. Ceramic offerings are corrosion-resistant and most of them are also good insulators that can withstand high temperatures. These properties have led to their use in virtually every aspect of modern life

Purchased these again for a gift. They are quite unusual, but are also cute and very functionable as salt and pepper shakers.
