This handmade french butter crock or butter keeper is a beautiful way to store and serve butter so it's soft when you want to use it. This French Butter Dish will keep your butter soft and fresh because you store it at room temperature and seal in freshness by keeping about an inch of water in the bottom of the crock. When you're ready to use the butter, simply lift the top off and set on the table.

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 counter top for several weeks. Be sure to change your water every few days.

I created this on my pottery wheel out of porcelain clay and glazed it in a gorgeous periwinkle purple . The interior is glazed in a glossy white.

It will hold almost 2 sticks of butter (7 oz) and is 4" high x 5" across.

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!)

If you would like the little butter spreader knife that matches this glaze, you can choose it from the drop down menu at check out.

This is available in other colors, so if you'd like a different one, check out this section of my shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/BlueSkyPotteryCO?section_id=6938194

Frequently asked questions about BlueSkyPotteryCO

If I feel I can make something custom for you in a style, design and glaze that I have tested and perfected, I'm happy to consider custom and personalized orders. Please know that there is generally an added charge for this and it may take six weeks or more to complete.
Because all of my pottery is made one at a time, there will be variations in size, even when you purchase a set of two or more pieces. Generally these are maybe 1/4 to 1/2 inch in difference and a couple ounces in volume at times.
I use a very durable stoneware clay for my pottery, making it able to withstand continued, everyday use. Unless stated otherwise in the description, you can use my pottery in your oven, microwave and dishwasher.
It is very difficult to gift wrap your pottery since I need to make sure it has lots of bubblewrap and peanuts surrounding it so it arrives intact. However, I am very happy to tie a ribbon around the packing material and to include a hand written card with a message from you inside the box. Just leave me the wording in your Note to Seller at check out.
I do sell my work wholesale to gift shops and galleries. Please contact me for minimum order and pricing information. My phone is: 970-846-9349 and my email is deb@blueskypottery.com

I also have a watercolor shop here on etsy and would love to be represented by a gallery for that work. You can see it at: BlueSkyFineArt.etsy.com
