8 Crafty Cookware Products Every Witches' Kitchen Needs

If you are a witch, wizard, or descendant of either one, you will be delighted at these wonderful Witches' Kitchen items, guaranteed to entice your ancestors right into your home for a cooked toad or two. So...

Double, double toil and trouble
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.

(Act 4, Scene 1, Macbeth, William Shakespeare)

True to Artecnica's design MO, the Witches' Kitchen project is creating sustainable products made by indigenous artisans. Though the Witches' Kitchen designs were inspired by witch folklore, they were created by London designer, Tord Boontje, and handcrafted by artisans in Columbia, Guatemala, and Brazil.

At $330. for the hands and $1200. for the double pot, the 6 piece serving?
set is $770. I wonder how much they are paying the workers?
