Hello everyone, I’m a newbie here, my first post. I’m trying to find out how to make fully glazed spoons/salad servers. The best solution I can find at the moment are some stilts with metal pins from Scarva. Hopefully they would just leave small pinprick marks in glaze? I’m handbuilding in stoneware clay, planning to fire to 1240C. I’ve noticed that many spoons have been made with holes for hanging, but I gather that niochrome wire (sp?) would slump, under the weight? if I can’t find a solution for glazing fully I guess I’ll just glaze the spoons partially. Most of them I’ve inlaid slip patterns partially. Thanks for reading my query.
I made a honey dipper and a spoon, each for the first time, but I don't know how to glaze fire them. I've seen pictures of stoneware spoons and ladles online, and the pictures don't show holes (from hanging on a jewelry rack, for instance), so how are they fired? Is it simple and I'm just brain-tired? I think I have "potter's block" anyway, if there is such a thing. Haven't been able to work up much enthusiasm in almost a month. Maybe knowing how to make some spoons would get me started again.
