Pinch is a ceramic salt cellar & pepper shaker that gives flaky sea salts a home at the dining table.

Flaky finishing salts (like Maldon) are a secret used by chefs around the world, but they are rarely found outside the kitchen. Pinch is intended for these sea salts, which are too large to be shaken, but are instead pinched and sprinkled on food.

The top sphere is a traditional pepper shaker and acts as a cover for the salt cellar when not in use. Closing Pinch results in a satisfying slide of two pieces of ceramic against each other—reminiscent of a mortar and pestle.
