HaldeCraft, seen in the wild!

A couple of months ago I got a request from the husband of one of my customers; I had made her some dishes a few months before, would I mind making a butter dish that matches? Are you kidding? I love stuff like that! She was kind enough to snap a little action shot for me --

And if you are at all of the nerd persuasion like we are, and are wondering about the little monster near the butter....? You should go check her blog post!

Hey, Penny, thanks for commenting! You didn’t miss anything with the steps — but unfortunately this one is slipcast, so there’s no template. I have another one that I did for one-pound blocks (this one is for regular sticks) and that one I made by basically folding the clay around the one-pound block of butter and hoping for the best.

Good luck, and happy almost retirement!

I saw your butter dish tour on Pinterest and I think I must of missed steps 1 and 2! I teach Ceramics in a high school in North Carolina and my students want to make butter dishes. Could you please share your templates? Thank you so much!! I have really enjoyed looking through your site; I hope to be able to play in the clay 24/7 when I retire in June!! Thank you – Penny Paul
