My sea turtle butter dish is hand made with slab construction. I've created molds which I use to make the sea turtle. The butter dish is about 7 1/4 inches long. (See my other listings for sea turtle fan pulls and other stoneware items.)

After drying, the piece is fired to 1950 degrees in the bisque firing. Three coats of glaze are sprayed on the piece, which is then fired to 2250 degrees for the stoneware firing. I love the way the stoneware glazes flow over the edges of the pottery.

My stoneware pottery is lead-free, food safe, microwave safe and dishwasher safe. Since it's stoneware, this pottery won't chip like inexpensive, lower fired pottery.

Each piece is handmade; the color and shape may vary slightly from the photograph. This black licorise glaze is black breaking to brown where it's thinner or on the edges of the piece. See the closeup in picture 3. I really like the character and individuality this glaze charactistic adds to each piece.

Shipping within the United States and to Canada is USPS First Class Mail for a single butter dish. Due to First Class Mail weight limits, orders with multiple items will be sent by parcel post. For other countries, I use USPS Priority Mail International, which provides tracking. I pack securely with plenty of biodegradeable peanuts.

No hassle returns if it doesn't work out.
