This is a ceramic butter dish which I make in my studio, Old Farm Studio in Cape Town. I produce these items myself, using various techniques – slab-rolling and hand-molding. I imprint the design using tools and I sometimes incorporate other features – in this case the knob was an item I sourced in a lovely store in Kwazulu Natal. I have made my own knobs and can do that but in this case, I liked the contrast which it produced. The clay is Stoneware from Cape Town. The item is twice fired in my kiln at home.
