New for 2014…The “Etruscan Series” Pepper Mill
Since opening my studio to the public in 2009, I’ve made it a point to introduce a new, distinctive pepper mill design every Spring. This year, 2014, is our fifth anniversary of offering the very finest in pepper grinders “Made in America” . Tradition has it that the the fifth anniversary is called (very appropriately in our case) the “wooden anniversary.” To celebrate, I’m proud to introduce my new “Etruscan Series” pepper and spice grinder. This new series is inspired by the elegant vases developed over 2,500 years ago by the ancient Etruscans, who flourished in Italy between the eighth and fifth centuries B.C.
I hand craft each Etruscan Series pepper grinder on a wood lathe from hand-selected, sustainably-harvested tropical hardwoods. I then carefully French-Polish each mill by hand, using my own toxin-free finish, over a period of one to two weeks. This incredibly deep finish brings out all the natural beauty of of these magnificent pepper grinders. Each grinder is signed and numbered and comes gift-boxed with complete usage and care instructions along with a signed Certificate of Authenticity.
