365 Spoons in 2015: Day 37, Simple Swirl

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.

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 35

Looks like a spoon and bowl for guacamole or salsa! I didn’t plan it that way, but that is what I’m thinking it is. 🙂 The spoon has a hollow handle made from two pinch pots put together and then a spoon bowl attached. The bowl is a pinch pot with scrolled feet attached. The dot pattern is created by a small slender shell.
