Spoon a Day Challenge, Make 365 Clay Spoons in 2015: Day 65, Fish Friday

Today is Fish Friday and also the 65th day of the year. 300 days to go for this project. I have been pondering about if I will do another 365 days project next year and what would it be. I think maybe cups? Bowls? Any suggestions?

This is dotted with colorful underglaze. After it is bisque fired, I will apply a clear glaze and everywhere that looks like “background” (just the plain clay) will be bright white. The underglaze will brighten up considerably too.

Spoon a Day Challenge, Make 365 Clay Spoons in 2015: Day 63, Chinese Soup Spoon

I’m loving this Chinese soup spoon! It has a generous, self-supporting bowl; perfect for slurping noodles. It also uses black underglaze that has been scraped away (sgraffito). This will be glazed with a clear glaze and the final result will be a stark, black and white design.

Spoon a Day Challenge, 365 Clay Spoons in 2015: Day 43, Small and Puffy Spoon

Small, hollow spoon. Created from two flat slabs of clay and gently made to be rounded. Then joined together to form the spoon. I know, I know…I should have taken pictures of the process…my explanation is definitely lacking.

Spoon a Day Challenge, 365 Clay Spoons in 2015: Day 42

Simple textured smallish clay spoon, with stamped sprigs applied at neck. My family wanted me to make today’s spoon a tribute to Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, but I haven’t read it and I didn’t have any idea where to start with that…so I’ll just say that today is day number 42, the answer to life, the universe and everything. So long, and thanks for all the fish!

365 Spoons in 2015: Day 41, Lines and Vintage Graffiti

I love the background for these shots. It is an old school desk from Grainger County, TN, where my mom went to school as a girl. The boys used to bring pocket knives to school and whittle away at the desk when they were bored. The spoon is formed from one piece of clay and is solid. I hope that it doesn’t explode as thick clay is wont to do. I love the simplicity of this one.
