Description: Tahir Mahmood's Mortar & Pestles are made of dalbergia sissoo wood (native to the Indian Subcontinent, often referred to as "Indian Rosewood") and are shaped using the ancient technique of lathe turning.
Inspired by the Punjabi agricultural calendar, the collection of eleven designs is handmade by artisans in Tahir's studio in Lahore, Pakistan. Vibrant colors are created with a sap-based resin and applied with palm leaves. A successful graphic designer, new media artist and product designer, Tahir's work has been featured in numerous publications including I.D. Magazine, Canadian House & Home and the National Post. His work is sold at several retailers in Toronto, at The Future Perfect (New York City) and online at Caviar20.com. Go below the fold to enter!

Help Us Give Back!This year, Apartment Therapy is celebrating the spirit of giving by partnering with DonorsChoose for our 2010 Holiday Giveaway. Just as we're giving away something to you, you can give something back by helping us fund classroom projects around the country. Our goal is $10,000 by December 15th. You don't have to donate to DonorsChoose to be eligible to win one of our giveaway prizes; we just think it's a cool thing to do. Need extra incentive? We'll be tracking our fundraising progress every Friday in a special DonorsChoose post, where we'll also reveal what things the Apartment Therapy Staff is willing to do if we make our goal!
