This pretty green french butter bell is both a beautiful way to store and serve butter so it's soft when you want to use it. This handmade ceramic butter keeper 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 the butter crock reservoir and set on the table. Also works well as a Cheese Bell for soft cheeses.

Here's how these work and how I made it:

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 carved in a woodland forest design in the water reservoir and then used stains and glazes in various shades of purple. The crock measures 3" tall x 5" across and holds one and a half sticks of butter (about 6 ounces).

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!)
