Simply great!
It seems a tool used in Italy (years and years ago) for rice (but this is bigger and made with stone).
PS: Have you received my envelope?

wow! you have an amazing studio... not sure where you live but the view is amazing! I love that you have brought in the turquoise color to cool off the view from your windows. I have to tell you - but visiting your blog is such a treat & I'm amazed that you get so much work completed & still post daily blogs!
