This gorgeous butter dish will surely become a conversation piece! The textured matte glazes give it an earthy muted feel, but it's shape is sure to give it a presence on the table.

The lid for this butter dish was cast from a mold I made of a plastic produce container, and it even retains some of the marks present on the original piece. The bottom portion of the butter dish was hand formed to compliment the lid. The handle was cast from a mold made of a chow chow figurine.

This unique handcrafted butter dish is built to last and, with care, will last many lifetimes.

Dimensions:
h: 4" / l: 7" / w: 4.5"

Approximate interior dimensions of lid:
h: 1.75" / l: 5.3"/ w: 3.3"

**Each item is functional, food safe, and can be washed in the dishwasher**

Each piece is individually hand built from molds created from found objects. These objects range from heirlooms handed down from both of my grandmothers, to items usually discarded in the trash or found washed up on the beach.

All butter dishes are cast using porcelain and fired to 2300 degrees Fahrenheit. This type of intense reduction firing causes the glaze to transform in color and depth. These changes are most pronounced on the edges, adding interest to the form of each piece. This means that each piece is one of a kind and the variations seen in color and texture are all a part of the item's story.

I asked for this as a special order, so I waited a while for delivery. It was worth the wait. The craftsmanship in this piece is exceptional. The bird handle is charming, and also easy to grip.

Einmalig schön. Farbverläufe sind wunderschön und das Eichhörnchen oben drauf macht die Butterdose perfekt. Schneller versand. Sehr netter Kontakt. Bin sehr zufrieden.

The butter dish was quite well made, beautiful in fact, and well packed, it was not quite the right size for my butter sticks. Nonetheless, Tricia was instantly on the return and made the whole process quite satisfying. Would not hesitate to order again from her.
