Maybe you feel a twinge when, at dinner, you bring out the butter on a small saucer. Or maybe on a cutting board that you'd rather be using for something else. Or maybe you don't even bring out butter at all, unless someone asks for it, just because you don't know what to carry it to the table with. This handpainted butter dish solves all your problems! It's functional, doesn't take up much room either on the table or in the refrigerator between meals, and it comes in a variety of colors that can match almost every setting.
This item is available in custom colors! You can see current available HaldeCraft glaze colors on this "Ceramic Glaze Colors" page. Choose "custom color" from the drop-down menu, just as you would any other color for this item, and in the notes on your check-out page, tell me the color you want for your item. Buying multiple custom-glazed items? Be sure to tell me which ones you want in which colors. I will contact you within 24 hours to confirm your color choice and give you a time frame for your order; most custom ceramic pieces can take 4-6 weeks (so please plan accordingly if you are gift shopping, or shopping with a deadline). If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me beforehand.
This piece is glazed with non-toxic, food-safe glazes and is fine to wash in the dishwasher.
HaldeCraft ceramics begin life as slip-cast, hand-built, or wheel-thrown pieces (or sometimes a combination of all three techniques) and then are painted and glazed and put out into the world, all by the hands of one person. I learned ceramics like an old-school apprentice, at the feet of my grandmother who had a studio in the 1950s and 1960s, and many of the pieces I make incorporate now-vintage molds that she bought then. My pieces are unique, hand painted, and proudly made in my own home studio with confidence, mindfulness, and joy.
