Handmade stoneware lidded butter dish with soft matt vanilla glaze. A lovely mothers day gift, birthday present, or wedding present for a pottery lover.
My ceramic butter dishes are made from a natural buff stoneware clay. Both the lid and the base are thrown on the wheel.
The butter dishes are high-fired in the kiln to 1000 degrees (the bisque fire) which dries and strengthens them sufficiently for glazing. They are then dip glazed in my own soft matt vanilla glaze and fired again to 1250 degrees.
Each butter dish is individually crafted so no two are exactly alike.
Handmade in my studio on the south coast of England.
