So I decided to buy a French-style butter bell, so I could keep my butter out rather than in the fridge where it gets rock hard and unspreadable and picks up all kinds of odors.
After searching about a bit, I ordered from Clay Coyote in Minnesota.
I absolutely love it. This is one of my best Internet purchases ever. The pottery is really gorgeous -- I got the "Yellow Salt" glaze -- and it is very functional. And the price was very reasonable for a beautiful piece of handmade pottery.
