This butter dish is thrown on the wheel using porcelain stoneware clay in our studio, located in Calgary, Alberta. The graphic on the butter dish has been hand-carved into the surface using the sgraffito technique, which involves covering the surface of the plate and the butter bell with our handmade black slip and carving away until the image is finished. This means you can feel the slightly raised, carved texture. Each butter dish holds about a half a pound of butter. While we create different series of designs each butter dish is made and decorated individually, so that no two pieces are identical, and each design is matched with one of our brightly coloured glazes.
All of our pieces are handmade, so their individual sizes may differ slightly. We do our best to keep them as consistent as possible.
Stands about 13cm tall and is 14.5cm wide at the base
