Play with the rules of etiquette with this handmade butter dish, cheekily pretending to be a block of butter still in its wrapper.
Artist Beatrice von Preussen crate the packaging feel with her delicate water colour illustrations and witty turn of phrase. Wrapped around the lid that Katie has made in clay to emulate a pat of butter.
No butter fingers hear with the raised lip on the base making it easy to pick up.
Team with the matching Milk Carton, Sugar Pot or Egg cups to make a joyous gift.
All finished with a transparent glaze to show of the grey monotone shades of the drawings against the natural soft cream colour of the clay.

Lid W 135mm x D 98mm x H 55mm
Base W 165mm x D 130mm x H 22mm

All items are earthenware, cast using a fine semi-porcelain slip, that is mixed on site using a ‘secret recipe’ passed on many years ago, under the condition it’s never shared!
Finished with transparent food safe glaze.
The skilled team at Fine Ceramic Transfers in Stoke-on-Trent, transform Beatrice von Preussen illustrations into the highest quality screen-printed transfers, which Katie then hand applies to each glazed item before returning to the kiln for the third and final firing. At 1060oc this temperature allows the transfer to sink into the glaze, forming a durable protective layer over Beatrice artwork to prevent fading with use.
Dish washer and microwave safe, just to make life a little easier.

Katie Brinsley Ceramics
I love making, I can’t help it, my hands get restless when I’m not. That’s how Katie Brinsley Ceramics started, with my hands. They momentarily let me down as my friends treasured butter dish slipped out of them smashing on her floor. This inspired me to make the best possible replacement! I chose slip casting for its beautiful clean lines and tactile smooth finish that makes an everyday object a delight to use. I haven’t stopped making my ceramic tableware since.
