This is a double-sided spoon/scoop formed by hand from one chunk of clay whilst watching Star Trek: The Next Generation. On Instagram (sonyajpenn), I posted a short video of it being turned over so that you can see both sides well.
I started to make a cat spoon tonight, but I felt silly posting it. So I went for the safe thing and made a very simple spoon with a cinnamon roll swirl on the handle. I am also including some up close shots of some of the spoons that came out of the kiln yesterday. I am really happy with how the firing went.
I wasn’t very happy with yesterday’s “Love Knot” spoon. So I thought about how I could do it differently to achieve a better outcome. I was more careful about keeping the lines parallel and instead of treating the clay coil like a piece of yarn, I laid it all out and then cut the parts that needed to go behind and then joined them again in the proper place. This is probably confusing. I hope that the pictures can tell the tale.
