Spoon a Day Challenge, Make 365 Clay Spoons in 2015: Day 93, Fish Friday

Feast your eyes on the last of the Fish Friday spoons for Lent! Easter is just around the corner and certain people that live in my house INSIST that they aren’t too old for an Easter basket. I guess you are never too old for chocolate. 🙂

Spoon a Day Challenge, Make 365 Clay Spoons in 2015: Day 82

My son suggested that I try a spoon that incorporates a Mobius strip. Never heard of a Mobius strip?

Per Wikipedia: The Möbius strip or Möbius band (UK /ˈmɜrbiəs/ or US /ˈmbiəs/; German: [ˈmøːbi̯ʊs]), also Mobius or Moebius, is a surface with only one side and only one boundary. An example of a Möbius strip can be created by taking a paper strip and giving it a half-twist, and then joining the ends of the strip together to form a loop.

So, here is my attempt at a Mobius strip handled spoon.

Here is my best attempt at a sunfish. I hope that it is up to snuff for all of those fishing experts out there. I certainly don’t know much about different types of fish. Just two more Fish Fridays for lent!

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, 365 Clay Spoons in 2015: Day 51, Fish Friday

I think that I will try using a fish theme during the Lent season for this spoon project. This one is  a bass. I don’t think I have ever eaten bass. I wonder if it is good? Thank you to the hubs for being my hand model tonight. What a sport!
