365 Spoons in 2015: Day 36, Small Scoop and Kiln Opening

I am so pleased with today’s kiln opening! Everything came out well; no problems in the firing. That. Never. Happens. So needless to say….SUPER HAPPY!!

Today’s spoon, #36, is a small scoop. Handbuilt from a small slab. The scoop part is all one piece with two cuts and folded in on itself. Then a flat strip for the handle. I tried to get Harry to pose with the scoop, but he was convinced that I was up to no good!

Lots of pictures today, spoon first and then all the kiln opening pics.

365 Spoons in 2015: Day 32, Love Me Knot…revisited

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.
