These organic-shaped ceramic bowls are actually precise measuring cups, corresponding to commonly used volumes in cooking recipes. The shapes refer to the mound of spices found in markets. Salt is used as a mold to shape these cups designed by Maddalena Gioglio and Egle Tulekyte, master students at WDKA.
