365 Spoons in 2015: Day 5

After yesterday’s post, I still wanted to do more with dots. This spoon is larger and could be used for a serving spoon. It is heavier, too, creating some concern about the glaze firing. I don’t think that my bead rack will be able to hold up the weight of the spoon during firing. I may need to invest in some stilts to hold them off of the shelves instead of hanging them from the bead rack. Today I am including more photos of the process of making the spoon as well as the finished product. There is one bonus pic of my manager inspecting my work. 🙂
