There is great beauty to objects found in nature, offering exquisite inspiration for the design industry. The Ajori Cruet is modeled on the elegant form of a fist of garlic, and quite a fitting shape for a holder of spices, seasonings and dressings.

This delicious dining table accessory is the creative yield of photoAlquimia, Pilar Balsalobre and Carlos Jimenez. Its sculptural shape mimics that of a cluster of individual garlic cloves, all of varying sizes, accentuated in shape by their dry skins and budding up to a central stem. The base of the Ajori Cruet comprises a dimpled platter that fits the collection of bulbous pieces and a wooden core that extends upwards gracefully as a handle. It enables you to fill it with olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper in the kitchen and carry it over to the table. Stats for Garlic Clove Caddies Trending: Older & Warm
