There is something deeply satisfying in most circular patterns and design visuals. The cicrumference or circle has also been used in various art and craft forms since ancient times in several religious and sects. In Sanskrit, Parikrama means "the path surrounding something". Typically, in Indic-religions the parikrama is done after completion of traditional worship (puja). Taking inspiration from the natural form of a never ending line, comes this beautiful spiral collection from VarEesha - Parikrama. The series includes a number of dinnerware,serve-ware, storage and bath accessories. It comes in two colors that match most decor styles and themes. Noteworthy is the effort and steadiness it takes to build each piece by hand and then hand paint the circular patterns still maintaing the spacing and shading. The pieces have also been designed keeping in mind practical utility and thus are dishwasher and microwave safe (without the wooden parts). Lead free and Non toxic, they are hygeinic and a healthy choice. Parikrama Blue Spiral Ceramic Salt n Pepper with Toothpick Holder Set is a part of this series that has three pieces, one salt n pepper set and one toothpick holder, each measuring 2x3 inches in diaxh. Unique and eye catching, this can be a wonderful gift too. P.s toothpicks are not aprt of the product package.
