Thumb Grinder

Thumb Grinder


This is a tool I created for myself and decided to do a couple more if anyone is interested. I’m currently working on a new book about edible wild seeds and grains, this type of grinders was designed to removed the husk of some more “reticent” grains such as wild oats.  You basically use your thumb and rub the grains against the rough surface of the grinder to remove the husk.  It works well for small production and some grains.  Two in stock.


Made from a mix of local clay and clay mined in Southern California.


Transparent glaze and iron oxides.


Mixed building techniques – Wheel and hand building


Fired at cone 6 (2200 °F – 1204 °C) using my electric kiln.



Diameter 4.5 inches (11.5 cm)

Height: 2 inches (5 cm)

Weight: 12.2 oz (346 gr)


Don't forget to read the section about pottery care.
