What’s Brewing in your Kitchen this Halloween?
My healthy food concoctions are scary enough, but wouldn’t it be fun to see the kids’ faces if they came home to this scene on Halloween? These artisan pieces are as unique as they are functional.
1. Witches’ Kitchen Set: This collection of kitchenware was originally designed by Tord Boontje. Artisans handcrafted each piece in one of three South American countries. The black ceramic cookware is hand-molded by Colombian artisans, the wooden kitchen utensils are hand-carved by Guatemalan craftspeople, and the kitchen couture was hand-sewed by Brazil’s Coopa-Roca women’s cooperative. The black casserole dish is still available at YLiving.com.
2. Cat Yixing Tea Mug with a cat handle is made from a unique, dark brown clay found near Yixing, China. The clay is porous and unglazed allowing it to absorb flavors.
3. Handmade Broom: Broom with natural red bristles made in Pennsylvania. Use for indoor or outdoor broom..
4. Cast Iron Potjie Pot Cauldron: This pot is made from pure grey cast iron and is pre-seasoned with edible high quality flax seed oil. The round shape allows the heat to flow evenly around the sides and maintain liquids at the lowest point to keep food from burning. The lid has a deep lip for holding hot coals and are perfect when cooking over open fires or LP gas burners.
5. Sarpaneva Cast Iron SaucepanThe Sarpaneva cast iron pot is an award-winning piece designed by Timo Sarpaneva in 1960. It is back in production as part of the iittala collection. The detachable wooden handle is an ingenious design that allows you to easily remove it from the oven, carry the pot to the table, and safely lift the lid.
The Cast Iron Potjie pot (#4 above) comes in many sizes, so if you’re thinking of using it for your outdoor fire pit, you can find the perfect size. It also makes for a memorable serving vessel.
