Toupie salt & pepper shakers
A salt and pepper set which lends a little playfulness to the dinner table. ‘Toupie’ was inspired by a spinning top, one of the world’s oldest human toys, known as a toupie in French. The generous shape means that the shakers comfortably fit the hand in use. They are filled from below and are made of stoneware.
Stoneware. H 7 cm (3"), W 10 cm (4"). Hand wash only.
Jessika Källeskog is very much a hands-on designer, sculpting forms and working in close harmony with her material. She spent a decade studying and working in Italy and this has had a formative influence on her understanding of design. It was in Italy that she developed her interest in sculpture and craftwork, as well as her fascination with the tactile qualities of objects: their materiality, and the encounters between contrasting forms that subtle details can give rise to. Today Jessika runs ‘Contour’, her own design studio in Stockholm specializing in product design and interior architecture.
