The Banana Salt & Pepper Shaker is Playfully Deceptive

Deceptive designs are so much fun, especially because they often have a very 'James Bond' feel to them; the Banana Salt & Pepper Shaker is even more fun considering its rather playful shape and casual purpose.

Created by New York artist Michiko Shimada, the Banana Salt & Pepper Shaker is handmade out of porcelain that has been colored in yellow and green, with an unglazed, matte finish. Available in sets of two, each one is essentially the size of a real banana. It is a good thing that you would have to peel one first before taking a bite out of it, or else you would just be getting a mouthful of ceramic.

Priced at $36, the Banana Salt & Pepper Shaker is available online at Etsy.
