Design Crush

This unique mortar and pestle set by Spencer Hung turns the act of grinding spices, herbs, or loose leaf teas into something beautiful. Instead of the hammer-and-crush motion of a Western mortar and pestle, this set draws inspiration from traditional Chinese tea grinders that use a wheel and an oblong bowl. Simply place your ingredients in the minimalist, high-sided porcelain dish, and enjoy the scent of essential oils being released as you roll the solid oak wheel back and forth. Made in China.

Due to the nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Spencer Hung was born in Taipei, Taiwan and at the age of 15, he moved to Vancouver Canada, where he graduated from Emily Carr University of Art and Design. He began his career as an in-house designer for wireless products.

At the age of 30, as he spent half of his life so far in the west and the other half in the east, he decided to move back to his birth place, Taipei.
