Butter Dish Order

Yesterday someone asked me to make them a rectangular butter-dish for one stick of butter. I said I would try, as I usually make round pottery on the wheel. I decided to try to make it on the wheel instead of hand building it from slabs of clay. I measured the butter and then threw two round dishes the right width. After they were soft leather hard, I cut a wedge from the center and squished the sides to make the pieces oblong. I filled in the cracks and let dry some more. Today I carved the pieces down and smoothed and textured and added a handle.

I hope she likes it♥
