Utensil crock made of speckled stoneware, glazed in a rust red glaze with brownish green speckles that shows through the red (see detail photo). The name of the glaze red planet really is accurate as it makes one think of Mars when looking at the glaze. Short and wide crock, made with a heavier bottom so the crock does not tip when loaded with utensils, or silverware for your holiday dinner party. Also great in your craft room for holding paint brushes, scissors and other crafting tools. Food safe. **New use for these utensil holders. They make great "blending" containers. Use them with a stick blender for making pestos and nut butters. No splatter like in a conventional bowl, easy cleanup unlike a food processor!!** 5"x4.5"
