Something between a totem and a monolith: SALT stands on the dining table. Seamless and porous, it calls to mind a perfect piece of moon rock.

Add a touch of mystery and primordial, galactic drama to the dining table: Pick up the satisfyingly heavy salt shaker and shake it over your meal, watch as the fine grain salt seems to just emit from the top surface, finding its own way out of the labyrinthine structure.

How did and why did we make this strange piece of tableware? We had been shown various techniques of casting aluminium in Russia. By introducing rock salt into the casting process for aluminium, you have an aggregate that resists the 660°c melting point of aluminium ore, and is totally food safe. Better yet, while salt is impervious to heat, it is helpless against water. The aggregate can be washed out easily, leaving the mysterious, moon-rock like voids in the volume, through which the finer grain of conventional table salt can find it's way to your avocado.
