You can also use soft herbs such as Chocolate-mint and Rosemary, and many local grocers…

Shelley Simpson was prototyping a light for a well known department store, when the pebble shaped lamp base broke in two during firing, leaving a nicely dimensioned flat-bottomed bowl – and thus the Pebble was born!
