Butter is my favourite food: there's no getting around it. And what could be a better way to celebrate the gloriousness of butter than a real nice butter dish, hand-thrown from my Bristol studio.
With a reversable base, the bottom plate can be used either flat side down (and therefore with a ring to keep the lid in place) or footring-side-down (which raises the dish a little and enables you to pick it up easily). Up to you. Both are nice. The bottom plate features a gentle swirl mark which I've made with my thumb.
This butter dish features a comfortable handle and is stamped with my maker's mark. It has been glazed in my classic simple oatmeal glaze, a slightly off-white colour with tiny flecks of iron peeping through the glaze surface, breaking slightly darker on sharp edges. I've also made a couple in my Sea Foam blue glaze, which is also quite pretty :)
13cm diameter of butter bell at widest point

Food safe glaze
Not recommended for microwaves or dishwashers (although I whack mine in all the time and it's fine - the glaze will have a longer lifespan if you handwash it, though).
