Shitaku Mortar & Pestle

Sold out

The Shitaku Mortar & Pestle is created by Makoto Koizumi, one of Japan's leading industrial/product designers. Like a traditional suribachi, the unglazed interior of the mortar is grooved with the geometric pattern known as kushi-no-me. This rough texture makes it easy to grind round ingredients such as seeds and small nuts, while efficiently extracting moisture and essential oils from herbs and spices.

Shitaku series is a collaboration between Koizumi Studios and popular Japanese brand Kihara renowned for its fine porcelain work.
