knutson + ballouhey

pepper and salt mortar

Sigve Knutson and Thomas Ballouhey's objects combine minimalism with the aesthetics of the Stone Age, like with this rough-shaped grinder consisting of a grinding ball that rolls in a preconceived circular trench. While the grinder looks like it’s been beaten out of solid rock it is actually made of cast iron protected by diazotization against corrosion.
