The show is up! I am so grateful to 5-0-Lou on Frankfort Avenue in Louisville, KY for giving me the venue to display my 365 day project. They recently opened up their store and it looks amazing! It is a terrific location and they are wonderful to work with to boot! Thank you guys! It is so incredible to finally see the whole project on display. It will be up through June 15th, 2016.
Chartreuse, blue and black will be the colors this spoon will sport after it gets its clear glaze. The colors will be much more bright. Right now, the chartreuse doesn’t really show well, but it will be quite vibrant after firing.
Sweet little textured spoon.
I just love texture, can you tell? Today’s daily spoon/creative challenge is mid-sized and highly textured. Created from one piece of clay. The parts that look like peacock feathers are made with a seashell.
Very simple spoon created from one piece of clay with a squarish handle. Good for porridge.
Large spoon with teardrop (or flame) shaped handle. Gotta run! Playing Scrabble with the fam. 🙂
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.
10″ of snow at our house today. Harry did NOT care for it. Waits for someone to shovel him a place to potty.
And today’s spoon is a ladle with puffy handle!
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.
