New Dirty Bird One Piece Brush Scuttle

Post by LookingGlass » Sat Mar 03, 2012 5:28 am

All,

Tim graciously allowed me to purchase this scuttle and I am glad he did. Nice size; keeps the lather warm for a number of passes. Also, it is a unique glazing.

Highly recommended.

I purchased this scuttle from a fellow SMF member and did not order it from Julie at DB pottery. The original purchaser worked with DB to get this color and glaze. I was fortunate to pick up this piece due to the unique glazing and color.

Perhaps you can contact DB concerning a specific glaze/color??

This is interesting as I thought only the standard colors would be available. Makes me even happier that I was able to pick up this glaze from the SMF B/S/T.

There is one item concerning this scuttle I do not understand. If it is a "brush scuttle" then why does it have the swirl/groove lines in the bowl? I make lather in a separate bowl and then transfer it to this scuttle to keep the lather warm - works great.

However, it I had my rathers, a smooth bowl would be my choice. Just a thought.

Scuttle ID

Hi Ed --

I;m having trouble identifying the scuttle on DB web site. I know the color would likely be different, but can't seem to find the style. Can you help me nail this down? Thank you.

Under the Shaving Gear tab, it is the "Travel Scuttle" on the upper right side of the page,

she has actually renamed it..."Baby Bird"

the reason for the swirls is, it's actually marketed as a Travel Scuttle and used for smaller bowl lathering, but many have adopted it as a "brush scuttle".

hope that helps.

Bruce,

Thanks for the explanation. Still, would be nice to see a smooth bowl with a little steeper sides like the Georgetown brush scuttle. Also, it would be nice for DB to be a little more creative in the color spectrum like Georgetown. IMHO, the three advertised glaze/colors are pretty bland when compared to Georgetown products. I am happy to be able get the glaze I did from Tim. Overall, the DB travel scuttle is a nice piece and I am enjoying it much.
