Plum & Belle
They are a smaller shape than traditional salt pigs, hence the decision to call this the salt piglet instead.
They are individually wheel-thrown as a globe shaped bowl and then the base is sculpted away to make a more circular shape. Then the salt piglet is paddled to flatten one side so that the mouth is tilted more forward. After the first firing they are dipped in a milky white glaze and then they are fired again.
The salt piglet is sold singly.
Size: Height approx from 8.5 to 9.5cm Opening from approx 6.5 to 7.5cm

Materials & Care
Materials & Care
Made by hand in London from British stoneware clay.
All glazes on dishware, jugs and beakers is food safe. These dishes are NOT overproof.
Stoneware is a robust type of pottery so it is dishwasher safe, although we do recommend handwashing.
The creation of clay as a material and then the firing stage of ceramics are not inherently highly sustainable, but we take steps to ensure our pottery is as sustainable as possible.
Our pieces are made from British clay which reduces the carbon footprint during materials transportation, and we create our collection in a West London ceramics studio with extremely high standards in material reclaiming and waste water purification.
All of the P&B ceramics are made in small production runs. As one run sells out there is another in production. This may result in a short wait for yours to be delivered. We'll let you know an ETA if this is the case.
Due to the fully handmade nature of this item there will be some variation in size and shape. If you do order multiples from us, we will endevour to choose close matches where possible.
