Spoon a Day Challenge, Make 365 Clay Spoons in 2015: Day 71

Textured coffee scoop with hollow handle.

I made another cat spoon today, but I made a “safe” coffee scoop to post instead. This is the third time I have made one and didn’t have the guts to post it. I just look at them and they look so silly! I don’t know, maybe one day I will be brave enough to post it whether I hate it or not!

Spoon a Day Challenge, Make 365 Clay Spoons in 2015: Day 70

Spring is in the air! I had a nice walk with my good friend today and for the first time this year, I felt that spring was definitely on the way.

Today’s spoon is small with a loopy handle and photographed in front of some emerging spring bulbs. Happy Spring!

Spoon a Day Challenge, Make 365 Clay Spoons in 2015: Day 69

I am experimenting with a narrow handle. I am concerned that it will be too fragile to hold up to much use. I will test it out. I love the sleek lines it has! I again used the darker clay that looks so much like chocolate in its leather hard stage.

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.
