Butter Bell, Rook
This late 19th-century French-designed crock has two parts: a base that holds water, and a cup to hold the packed butter which also serves as a lid in order to keep butter soft and fresh without the need for refridgeration.
How to Use
This crock has two parts: a base that holds water, and a cup to hold the butter in - which is also the lid.
- Fill the lid/cup with room temperature butter.
- Fill the base with 1" of water.
- Place the lid (now filled with butter) back onto the base.
This creates an airtight seal that keeps air away from the butter so it stays fresh at room, without needing refrigeration.
Change the water daily.
My shapes are inspired by historical Victorian 'chimney pots,' cathedral architecture and the principals of the Arts & Craft movement. I created my unique glaze recipe to resemble the frost-coloured lichen that grows on weathered limestone and granite buildings and headstones.
