Butter Dish


Here’s a two-piece domed butter dish, thrown at the wheel.  After careful trimming and the application of a knob, the pieces are dried together to the correct state for carving.  A geometric pattern divides the space, and dot-filled squares divide the rim of the service plate.  After bisque firing, the floor of the plate and the inner surface of the dome are glazed by pouring.  Slips are painted to accentuate the design, and a rutile-rich gold slip is applied as drops on the rim.  $64.00. 7″ Diameter, 5″ High.  Sold, others available.
