SALIERA - amber
Long ago, alabaster was formed from the evaporation of salty water from seas that had passed. Today it lies embedded in plaster as "eggs" weighing several pounds at a depth of up to 300 meters. The deposition processes that took place millions of years ago are visible as stripes in the brownish alabaster. The transparent, snow-white variant with its matt, porous surfaces is reminiscent of the salty origin of alabaster.
The Saliera is made in a craft workshop in Tuscany, where alabaster has been found and processed for centuries.
The hand-flattering spoon bowl made of maple wood is hand-turned in the nearby southern Black Forest.
