Darumina Canister

April 24, 2008

I currently hide my canisters away in a cabinet because they are your run of the mill, ugly plastic containers. These however, I would let grace my counters…

The canisters were designed in 1967 by Sergio Asti. He originally designed it as a table lamp. The beautiful Darumina canister has a beautiful organic shape with rounded edges. It is made of high quality Japanese porcelain.

Pencil filings are usually the unwanted remains of sharpening a pencil, but in this case, the “pencils” are chocolate and come in a number of cocoa blends that vary in intensity.

Composting

February 26, 2008

I’ve always thought composting was intriguing…the thought that you can take gross old food and turn it into something useful. This is a wonderful size…and it says it has a carbon filter to quench any odors??
