Bovine Butter Keeper

Celebrate the wholesome source of butter with this stoneware dish shaped like a happy Holstein. Hand formed from stoneware with glazed details, Marjorie the cow is an endearing representative of all hoofed milkmaids, nestled on a serrated green dish suggestive of her pasture. The largely unglazed outside of the cow provides a no-slip surface for your fingers, while the glazed interior and dish provides a sanitary, easy-to-clean environment for your butter. Handmade by Becky Ziemer in Memphis, Tennessee.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

As a potter, Becky Ziemer has found inspiration in quirky places. “Over the years, I have been most inspired by Jim Henson's Muppets and the wacky, corny sense of humor that permeated every one of his productions,” the Memphis-based artist says. She brings her visions to life using clay, takes in their “personalities,” then decides exactly where to add the finishing touch that brings them to life: the dots of their eyes. And though she’s always loved creating adorable creatures, she feels humbled by her animals’ magnetism. “I've had more than one fan tell me the highlight of their day is looking to see what new critter I made,” she says. “That just blows me away.”
