Description

Each one of these ceramic lava rock shakers was made by hand and based on one of the dozens of lava rocks I have taken from Iceland as souvenirs. Evidently it’s extremely cliche tourist behavior to take these rocks, and it is also potentially bad luck as it is difficult for tourists to tell the difference between “good” and “bad” rocks. Some tourists who have taken rocks home and proceeded to have bad luck have reportedly mailed their lava back to Iceland in the hopes of turning their luck around. I have had pretty good luck since leaving Iceland with all my rocks, and I hope who use these copies of my “good” lava rocks will have pretty good luck, too.
