This butter dish is thrown on the wheel using porcelain stoneware clay. The design on these butter dishes 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 – then carving it away until the image is finished. This means you can feel the slightly raised, carved texture as you hold it in your hands. Each butter dish holds approximately a half of a pound of butter. While I create different series of designs, each butter dish is made and decorated individually. No two pieces are identical, and each design gets matched with one of my hand-mixed, 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
EACH PIECE IS MICROWAVE AND DISHWASHER SAFE
The price per butter dish varies, starting at $60.00 CAD
