Good Egg

Set the table for well-seasoned design with these innovative salt and pepper shakers. At a glance, this egg-shaped set with no holes or stopper seems to be a product of modern invention – if it tips over, nothing spills out through the top or bottom. However, artist Stephanie Theado was inspired by the generations-old kitchenware she watched her grandmother use while spending her summers in France.

Hand-thrown on a potter’s wheel and fired with soda ash, these sleek ceramic shakers feature an interior slope to keep salt and pepper in place. Simply tip upside down, fill with salt or pepper, and then slowly turn it right side up. The seasoning settles along the base of the slope, only to be released with an up-and-down shake of the eggs. Handmade in New York.

New York

Along the Little Delaware River, in Bovina, New York you will find Stephanie Theado's pottery studio nestled among a handful of century old houses.

For inspiration, Stephanie draws on her memory of the pottery her grandmother used when she spent her summers in France. Drawing on her childhood memories has allowed her to design several collections of functional tableware. Her pottery is simple, quiet and centering, helping to ground an over stimulated world.
Stephanie only produces high fired stoneware pots, which will withstand heavy use for many years. She fires her pieces once, which cuts her fuel consumption by a third. She uses well water in her manufacturing process and never discards waste into the ground water. With being sustainable, her designs inspire a love of the natural world and an appreciation for locally made, environmentally friendly products.
