Suribachi is a Japanese Mortar which is a pottery bowl that has a jagged grooves on the inside to efficiently grind and mash ingredients such as sasame seeds, herbs and spices. It is also great for making a dipping sauce or a salad dressing.
Each jagged grooves are hand curved by a skilled craftsmen.

As this mortar is aesthetically pleasing, once you’ve made your sauce, you can use it as a serving dish. The spouted lip (called katakuchi in Japanese) makes it easier to pour the contents.
