I was really spoilt for choice this week, with all the photos from Pete showing some very wonderful turning, Ed Oliver's Combo piece which again I thought was beautiful (and well done on the Cover of WOW!) to Les Symond's Holy Grail which I thought was exquisite. But my choice has to go to Nick for a beautifully turned which has a simple design, but most of all very practical Mortar & Pestle, which I imagine will have many years of use.
Nick says he "wanted [a mortar] to neatly fit in the hand rather than move all over the worktop when in use. This meant a smooth rounded base with three carved legs to keep it upright when set down. There is a small lip on the inner lip which pours cleanly.
