TESTIMONIALS

I received the "one of a kind" blue French butter dish in early October, so I've been using it for about 2 months. It replaced a "big box" version, which had a cup-shaped butter holder. We live in California, so we keep the butter dish in the fridge and, with the other butter, I often found the hardened butter floating in the water, instead of being held in the cup. However, after 2 months of constant use, this has never happened with your dish, presumably because of the (more sensible) "inverted cone" design. Your dish was a little larger than I expected (it can hold about 6 oz of my favorite butter) and, when it arrived, my wife thought it might look a little out-of-place on our table. However, she was won over by the beautiful colors & design, and it's now in pride of place whenever we eat. Great product, great shipping, thank you! Lindsay

Porcelain French Butter Dishes 

Porcelain French Butter Dishes 

Porcelain is a finer clay body with less impurities then stoneware. The porcelain clay body I use is white when fired and therefore the glazes can be more clear, vibrant and colorful.
 

Stoneware French Butter Dishes

Stoneware French Butter Dishes

Stoneware is a little stronger then porcelain but that is only relevant if the pottery is used for cooking. I use two stoneware clays, a buff white and a high iron red. I use the high iron red for the stony gray (I also sometimes us it for copper red and the odd one of a kind piece. Some of iron bleeds through the glaze to its surface for a stony effect.

Reduction is created by the extraction of oxygen from the oxides in the glaze. Basically, the kiln atmosphere is starved for air. In order for the gas to burn it pulls oxygen out of the clay and glaze creating unique glaze effects.
 

Garlic Keepers

Garlic Keepers

Garlic is best stored without light but with some air movement. These handmade stoneware garlic keepers provides the conditions for storing garlic properly. Variations in color, design and size are normal. The size is about 3 1/2' high and 4' round
