Rocking Salt and Pepper Shaker

Not available for purchase.

PRODUCT STORY
Who says that playing with your food isn't the sophisticated way to behave? This salt and pepper shaker, from contemporary Danish design firm Normann Copenhagen, has the smooth organic form of contemporary art, but also happens to be cheerfully interactive. The U-shaped porcelain holds salt and pepper in its two bulbous ends, and bobbles back and forth on the table before coming to rest, balanced on its slender middle. The ceramic is formed with a complex internal barrier, and the two compartments have separate refill holes underneath, clearly marked for salt and pepper. Winner of an IF Product Design Award in 2010. Made in China.

Erin is always searching for cool new products, and she found one that rocks! Would add balance to your dinner table with this unique salt and pepper shaker? Would it make a great gift for someone with a love of modern design?

It is a very cool idea but anyone with an adventurous cat would know that this would become the next cat toy.

It's made in China. Make it in the USA and I would vote for it.

This is cute, but too pricey. I'd pay $15, not $35, since this would only be something you'd use as a conversation piece.
