Simply pack your butter into the hollow flange that I built into the lid. Add water into the base, just enough to create a seal with the butter when the lid is placed on the top. This crock will keep your butter dairy fresh on your countertop for several weeks. Be sure to change your water every few days.
I made this on my pottery wheel and glazed the interior in a glossy white, and glazed the exterior in a layered glaze that is a rich, dark blue. The crock measures 3" tall x 6" across and holds a stick and a half of butter (6 ounces), maybe a little more.
I have butter crocks in other colors and some of my french salt pigs here: http://etsy.me/Ts9lQe
It's very durable and may be cleaned in the dishwasher and may be used in the microwave, too, (if you want to melt some butter for dipping, say, lobster tails or crab legs!)
