Glazing pottery like spoons

Recommended Posts

Hello! What are my options when it comes to glazing something completely with out any wax resist. I have been wanting to make spoons but I am stumped because I do not want to have to wax resist the entire one side that will be laying on the kiln shelf. I want the entire spoon to be a certain colour. If I completely dip it and then fire it wont that make a mess of my kiln shelf?? Please help me! :)

Hi and welcome to the forum!

Ceramic stilts work well for things like this. They leave a little glaze prickle on the underside but those can be carefully ground down. Some clays will slump enough for these not to work, will have to try and see with a waster piece of clay underneath in case it sags onto the kiln shelf.
