Banksia Pod Salt and Pepper Shaker Set
This shaker set is turned from Banksia pods, the fruit of the Australian Banksia tree. Banksias are trees that produce a nectar-rich flower and, eventually, a large seed pod.
The seed pods, which take several years to mature, are hard and solid. Working without a pattern, I hand-turn the shakers so that they match each other in size and shape.
The shakers are fashioned with plastic salt and pepper inserts topped with a chrome cap. The salt shaker cap has a single hole; the pepper shaker has three. The shakers refill from the top. Simply unscrew the cap to refill.
Each set is finished with multiple coats of a durable polyurethane, hand-sanded between coats to produce a glossy sheen.
Dimensions: 4-1/2″ tall, 1-1/2″ at base of each shaker.
Use and Care Instructions: Wipe clean with a damp cloth and dry with a soft towel.
