French Butter Dish
If you love butter but find it hard to keep at at a spreadable temperature, then this unique design of Butter Dish is just what you need.
Pack 1/4 to 1/2 lb of butter into the lid, whatever amount you might use in a week or so. Before packing, let the butter warm up slightly but not so as to be very soft.
Put salted water into the base so that it is about 1/3 full. Water should just touch the butter.
When the inverted lid is on, an air tight seal is created that keeps oxygen away from the butter. You butter will stay soft and fresh. When you want to serve the butter, the top part rests securely on the table. Change the water at least once a week.
Diameter~ 4.5 inches by Height 3.5 inches.

Dave and Marlyn have been producing fine dinner and serving ware since 1984 and it has been long recognized for its unique glazes and designs . In 2013 they decided it was time to explore a new direction. Dave has always been intrigued by geometrical designs and patterns, specifically those of Aztec, Celtic, and Haida artists. These influences are very apparent in the latest designs. New glazes and glazing techniques were also developed. Using the techniques and skills they had mastered over the years.The designs are hand drawn over the first layer of blue glaze using liquid wax resist. Several colored glazes are then layered over the "resist" pattern. During the firing the wax resist burns away revealing the dark blue design surrounded by subtle tones of blue gray, with touches of warm rust.
They are excited to present their new glazes and designs in a full line of functional dinner and serving wares. Their pottery is Lead-Free, Microwave and Dishwasher safe.
