Meghan says: I love to create pieces that will be used every day - to make something pretty prosaic into a thing of beauty. This butter dish is a little work of art that can live in your fridge or on your kitchen table. Each piece is individually handcrafted and will have slight variations to the piece in the photograph.
While majoring in Architectural Engineering and spending the beginning of my career designing building materials, I developed an obsession with a structure's details: the curve of a downspout, the delicacy of a window, the geometry of a heating grate. The illustrations on my pottery are inspired by buildings that I have seen while traveling throughout the US, Europe, and Asia over the last few years. The inspiration for this cream and red butter dish is a fanlight window on the Royal Pavilion, in Brighton England.
I create each top and base from a slab of stoneware clay, which is carefully draped and folded over wooden blocks. The design is hand-drawn with a bright red underglaze and then glazed in a glossy clear - making it food, microwave and dishwasher safe.
