I was going to add this to the bottom of yesterday’s Irish Brown Bread post but realized I love this little dish so much it deserves a post of its own. I met Scott and Amy Belford, local potters in the Northern Chicago suburbs, years ago and was lucky enough to visit their production site. I learned so much during that short visit and was impressed by their attention to detail. One thing that fascinated me was that they throw these pieces as a whole then cut them so that the tops and bottoms match perfectly. I hope my photos do their art justice. Rest assured on leaving your butter out, butter does not spoil when left out in a crock of this sort, up to about 80° F.
Even the bottom of their pieces are gorgeous!
Isn’t this a beautiful way to serve butter?
