This tiny molcajete, or traditional Mexican mortar and pestle, is great for grinding herbs and spices. The simple form alludes to the cultural artifact through a modern aesthetic and use of materials.
While traditional molcajetes are typically carved from stone or volcanic rock, this version is hand cast from resin imbedded with marble chips to create a stone terrazzo effect that is both beautiful, durable and lightweight.

This is special because...
