Sarah Bak - French Butter Dish - Wave and Clouds Pattern
Keep your butter soft and fresh with a French butter dish. Simply add a layer of water on the bottom of the outer dish, pack the butter into the lid, and you can safely keep your butter on the counter, ensuring that it will stay soft. It holds approximately 1 1/2 sticks of butter. Also comes with information about how to use the dish. Painted in a fun wave pattern with some clouds, it is reminiscent of a day on the water.
A little bit of info about the process:
After the pot is thrown with porcelain clay, the bottom trimmed of excess material and the handle is added, I paint on the design using lead free underglazes while the clay is still damp. This is called the leather hard stage, and I love the sheen of the clay at this point in the process. Then, I carve through the painted areas with a special tool to create the white lines that you see within the design. Once it is fully dry, it is fired the first time, a clear glaze is applied and it is then fired the second time to a much higher temperature, approximately 2165 degrees.
Approximate dimensions are: 5" wide by 3" tall.
All of my pottery is made for everyday use, is dishwasher safe and microwaveable.
