The Witches' Kitchen

It's that time of season to get something seriously cool for your holiday festivities....

The Witches' Kitchen is a 15-piece handcrafted kitchenware collection featuring cookware, utensils, and kitchen couture. An Artecnica Design With Conscience project, the collection is a collaborative effort in sustainable design commissioned by Artecnica, designed by Studio Tord Boontje, and made by artisan communities in Brazil, Colombia, and Guatemala.

The ceramic cooking pots have a surface decoration created by pressing leaves from the surrounding jungle into the clay when the artisans are shaping the pots. The leaves burn away in the kiln firing and leave a fossil-like mark.

Inspired by the witches and wizards of western myth and legend, Witches’ Kitchen bridges the gap between sorcerer’s spell book and mother’s cookbook, celebrating the arcane magic behind every succulent dish.

How cool are the serving salad hands?
