Witches’ Kitchen by Tord Boontje for Artecnica


black ceramic cauldron casserole saucepan with lid :: aprons and mitts :: wooden service utensils :: witches kitchen designed by tord boontje

If you wish to bring something special to the table for your Halloween party this year, Dutch-born designer Tord Boontje came up with a concept that may please you.

But contrary to usual Halloween products, you will be able to reuse the cookware and serving ware in many occasions. Witches’ Kitchen is a 15-piece handcrafted kitchenware collection featuring cookware, utensils, and kitchen linens.


You will be a witch with a good aura knowing that this collection is a sustainable design commissioned by Artecnica, designed by Studio Tord Boontje, and hand made by artisan communities in Brazil, Colombia, and Guatemala.

Design with conscience is a program by Artecnica who recognizes the value of artisan labor and craft techniques. It put the emphasis into the use of eco-friendly products and production methods.

The Collection

The cauldron style black cookware is produced by hand molding ceramic. The leaf imprints are unique to each piece. The utensils are hand-carved in mahogany. Naturally, these details are reflected at the checkout counter. With the hefty prices, you may have to rely on some magic to put them on your table.

The witches and wizards aprons and mitts are very theatrical.
