I made a video of the easiest way to fill the Butter Bulb™

Made of porcelain and thrown on the pottery wheel, I've carved a swirled pattern into the body, giving it beautiful detailing and better grip.

My take on the French Butter Keeper. French Butter Dishes keep butter soft AND fresh on the counter top. Fill the top with butter, fill the bottom with water and the water will create enough of a seal to keep the butter fresh at room temperature. It feels sweet in the hand, very ergonomic. My design is a shallow version of the typical French Butter Dish cylinder for better butter access. I call mine "Butter Bulbs™". Nice for serving goat cheese or other soft spreads too, though I would keep those in the fridge till serving.

Some French Butter Dish guidelines:
-If you use unsalted butter, salt the water. (deters mold)
-Change the water every 3-4 days
-Store out of direct sunlight (hot + butter = melted butter!)

Made of porcelain, thrown on the pottery wheel, fired at cone 6 (2200 degrees F.) Food safe, dishwasher safe, microwave safe. The holes in the foot pedestal allow water to drain in the dishwasher.

SHIPPING: I base the U.S. shipping on USPS Priority Mail to the East Coast (I'm on the West Coast). I refund the difference between the posted shipping and actual shipping. I can ship internationally as well. Please convo me first and I'll be happy to set that up.
