I hand-built Verde Butter Keeper from stoneware clay, rolled to between 1/8-1/4″ thickness using a slab roller.
The clay is tan or light brown in color. The surface is an overlap of green and cream glazes. I dip each piece of the butter dish, the top and the tray, green and then cream glazes. I make both of the glazes.
Keep your butter on the counter so it’s soft when you want to use it. Verde Butter Keeper is both decorative and functional.
