Austrian company Fluidforms sells pepper and salt mills, vases and bowls, but with a twist—their website lets you design certain products to your specifications, within certain limits. The finished product will be made either completely by machine, or mostly by machine and then hand-finished.

The Shockwave design interface for making a pepper mill (at right) is intuitive but be warned, it might cause your browser to hang. The product we're crazy about is the fruit bowl (seen above), which from what we can make out is milled from a topographical landscape, in this case the area around Stuttgart. We'd like a New York City bowl to put some apples in.
