The clay for the spoon is hand rolled from grey stoneware and then imprinted with a range of designs. The spoons are left to dry for a minimum of 1 week prior to their first firing, which is to around 1000 degrees. After cooling, the spoons are glazed and then fired to around 1200 degrees depending upon the glaze used. Whilst every attention is made in refining the spoons, they will be subject to irregularities in shape – each one is unique! The process takes around than 2 weeks to complete – this allows for the hand rolling of each spoon, shaping, drying before the first firing, glazing and then final firing and cooling.
The price is for one small or large spoon handmade in my studio in the Surrey Hills
