Details of "Pile of salt" set1

Salt is beautiful when filled to the brim and flattened

The glass stand is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, but the weight of the stand is well felt and highly stable because it is made of glass.

Using a spoon or similar tool, gradually add salt to the hexagonal part of the glass base. Fill the glass with the salt to the brim, then press the salt a little with the back of a spoon to clean it up. The contrast between the transparency of the glass and the pure white salt is beautiful and looks like a stylish objet d'art.

The fact that it does not collapse or spill even when moved slightly is another key point that makes it easy to place in a variety of locations.
