French Olivewood Mortar & Pestle Set

In a perfect marriage of mastery and material, our artisans in France's Jura Mountain region meticulously handcraft each handsome and durable olivewood mortar and pestle to highlight the spectacular grain patterns.

This olivewood mortar and pestle set is made exclusively for Uno Alla Volta, from the hearts and hands of artisans. No two are exactly alike. Measures approx. 4in. inner diameter, 3.5in. and high with a 7in. pestle.

Handmade goods have cultural significance in almost every subculture and financial class. While the upper echelon may delight in the exclusivity of an object, crafting culture permeates the trendy shops of modern-day, millennial Brooklyn, and led the grassroots, ultra-feminist Riot Grrrl movement of the early 1990s. From punk musicians to polished socialites, an appreciation for handcrafted, one-of-a-kind wares is a common thread that connects us to our humanity. This work reminds us that our fingers can do so much more than just operate machines. It connects us to our cultures, our ancestors, our neighbors, and even strangers from faraway places, just through placing a single object between our palms.
