This distinctive piece of pottery is a great way to store your butter in order to keep it fresh as well as spreadable! Just pack your butter into the top of the keeper and fill the bottom with just enough water to create an air tight seal on the top. Earthtones Pottery’s French Butter Keeper juxtaposes a glossy, colorful glaze with a traditional ash glaze to create a unique surface effect that is visually enticing.
Earthtones Pottery Creates Elegance in Glaze
With their amazing contrast of glossy glaze to matte ash glaze, Earthtones Pottery pieces are elegant and distinctive. Francine creates subtle mottling and movement in her matte glaze by adding ashes from her own wood burning stove. She then pairs it with one of four vibrant colors in glossy glazes.
*Robin’s Egg Blue — A gorgeous glossy blue that brings out the subtle blue tones in the ash glaze
*Spring Green — A refreshing, rich shade of green that invokes a joyful Spring day
*Soft Pale Green — This subtle, semi matte green is like a pale carpet of lichen in a pristine forest.
*Burning Black — With a deep heart of burgundy dappled throughout a glossy black this glaze resembles the cooling embers of a fireplace.
Some colors are also available with raised (slip trailed) detail on the lid to create a playful, linear design and another layer of visual interest as the glaze pools and flows giving contrast to exquisitely display the variation in the glaze itself.
