This set of salt and pepper shakers was designed with the objective of creating parity between salt and pepper through their containers. The salt and pepper needed to be distinguishable without relying on color or number of pour holes. It began with the idea of the two shakers fitting together, then developed with consideration of our tendencies to make gender associations. Form was developed as a reference to the male and female figures. References to gender are subtle, but their placement can be very suggestive. The shakers are intended to promote curiosity and exploration, as they are meant to be played with at the table.
