Design by Thea Mehl.
Meal time and kitchen time seasoning have found their new little work horses. The Avva Salt + Pepper Mills have a low and sturdy bearing that sits firmly and compactly in the hand. Inside, the Mills feature ceramic grinders (renowned for their durability and resistance to acids, oils and salts) making for an efficient and long wearing grinding mechanism that will last as long as the visually subtle design. The set of 2 mills is hand crafted of natural beech wood in the Czech Republic by Drevotvar - a collective of local manufacturers committed to ethical sourcing, bearing certification from both FSC ISO.

Teroforma was created in 2006 by Anna and Andrew Hellman, driven by a desire to meet interesting people, see new places and create beautiful things. What they quickly learned was that ensuring their standards for products meant rejecting the allure of mass production. And so, the team embarked on a search for hand-picked designers and true craftsmen who could produce their products with skill and integrity - a search that lead them all over the world . Ultimately their vision emerged of the "right way" to make things in a world of scarce resources. This was a "focus on the quality and integrity of the creative process and the people involved knowing that only then can the finished product ever be considered truly beautiful."
The team at Teroforma has built a very strong idea of the ways that products should be offered to customers - simply, honestly, transparently and with a dedication to quality. They believe that products should be made to outlast their owners. And Teroforma commits that it will always be honest and thoughtful, working hard to surprise and delight its customers with carefully crafted home tools and accents for dining and entertaining.View other products from Teroforma
