This is the way I make spoons.
I form the clay into a sort of scone shape;
And start to pinch the bowl section of the spoon, working fast so the clay doesn't dry.
I roll out the handle, splaying my fingers using very little pressure so the snake doesn't loose it's shape.
I score the fat end of the handle, and the underneath bowl of spoon where I want them to fuse.
And golden poppies already making the hillsides sunny.
This is a different method of making. Its 'slumped' in an old treen spoon. Next time!
