These are our 8-inch Ash Morrison mills that I've airbrushed blue and green. The Morrison mills are our version of a traditional shaped salt and pepper mill.
Looking for a beautiful salt grinder or pepper grinder that lasts? Here is your answer to all of those mills that you've bought that just don't hold up over time. You know the ones that I'm talking about. It looked good on the shelf but the peppermill stopped working a couple months after you got it. Maybe it lasted a whole year but then one day you couldn't even turn the top to get it to grind.
The mechanisms used in the 8-inch airbrushed Ash salt and pepper grinders are made here in the USA. The pepper grinding mechanism used is Stainless Steel and the salt grinding mechanism used is Ceramic and both are designed to give your mill a longer life.
This wooden grinder is worked completely on the lathe. I drill the head and body first. Once the drilling is complete I then shape the head and body using hand tools and turning everything by eye on my lathe. I then take it off from the lathe and airbrush the blues and greens onto the pepper mill using transparent dyes. This allows the figure and grain to show through the dyed colors. This will be a real conversation starter.
The Morrison mills are approximately 2 5/8 inches in diameter at the base and tapers to 1 3/8 inches in the midsection and stand 8 1/2 inches tall. The shape is modeled after a lady dancing. Starting from the head, shoulders and waist area, all the way down to the beads or rings that I've turned near the bottom to be like the folds of her dress.
The beads/rings even have a purpose, I use the beads/rings near the bottom of the mill to help you tell the difference between pepper and salt. If the mill has three beads/rings it is a pepper mill and if the mill has one bead/ring it is a salt mill.
You are placing an order for this mill(s) and will not receive this exact one(s). There will be subtle differences because they are all one of a kind mills.
Spice grinders like these make great wedding presents, housewarming gifts, Christmas gifts and birthday presents.
