We have hunted for the perfect salt dish for a long time and finally enlisted our absolute favorite designers, Linda Poverman and Paula Hamilton, to produce it. Paula has been designing our embroidered bags among other Sal del Mar projects; Linda has been an art teacher and recently is going in another direction with her talents. We told Linda and Paula that we wanted a salt dish that reflects Sal del Mar’s simple, artistic and unique style. They took the theme and ran with it.They started with white earth clay and molded a bowl by hand topped with a handcrafted fish medallion. Then they fired it, but left it without a glaze. We could not ask for a salt dish that works better for holding our coarse, moist, somewhat grayish Sal del Mar. (If it were white and dry, it wouldn’t be natural since most table salts have been striped of their natural minerals.) We have already been using the newly created Sal del Mar salt dish at our own dinner table. We can now just pinch with our fingers and drop into the food. You will be able to buy the Sal del Mar salt dish on-line soon.
