Witches' Kitchen

Designed by Studio Tord Boontje

A Design with Conscience project, artisan communities
in Guatemala and Colombia collaborated with the
designer to produce different elements of the collection.

Witches Kitchen cookware is hand moulded by Colombian
artisans using a centuries old pottery technique, and is
embellished with textured leaf prints using a method
developed by Tord Boontje and the artisans involved.
The cookware line includes a black ceramic casserole
and saucepan, both with matching lids that double as
serving bowls.

Guatemalan artisans hand carve an intricate assortment
of wooden utensils out of locally sourced sustainable and
reforested wood. These utensils evoke a witch’s essential
tools, including a dagger knife and a pair of salad tossers
shaped like witch’s hands, in addition to a variety of
double ended serving forks and spoons.

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