If you need locally handcrafted glasses, knives, and cookware, head over to Practical Art in northern Phoenix. There you can find steak and chefs' knives crafted by Phoenician Lee Ziertan alongside natural-edge woodcutting boards hand-sanded and finished by James K. Rogers. There's no telling what local wares Practical Art might have for your kitchen at any given time: turned-wood rolling pins and salt cellars, ceramic oil pourers, forged iron cheese cutters, wood and glass bottle stoppers, wine bottle holders, blown-glass drinking glasses, and recycled glass coasters, plus other utensils and accouterments.
