A pretty design which takes a 250gm pack of butter.
Quite a complicated pot to make, the wall of the pot is made rectangular and attached to a separate base, then each butter dish lid is cut to fit. With the right proportions the shape of this pot can be satisfyingly compact.
11.5cm high | 12.5×16.5cm wide
It must be emphasised that A & J Young is a very small enterprise. The hand making process means that every pot will have its own idiosyncrasies. Small impurities in the clay, variations in the glaze colour and some crazing in the glaze are all part of the character of an individual pot and will not affect their function.
Please note that small variations may be noted between the photographs on our website and the pots you receive.
An almost clear glaze with some tin added to make the glaze slightly opaque. The painted colours show up very brightly on this glaze.
A fresh blue which can vary a little in different parts of the kiln. Stamps impressed into the clay show particularly well through this glaze and details are picked out in darker blue.
A classic bottle green which has a pretty brown fleck in it. Decorations are highlighted in cobalt blue.
This colour is made by applying one glaze over another making it thick and rich. Blue, green and often dark red are used to pick out details.
