This wood fired spoon rest's design was influenced by a commissioned piece that I did that was supposed to capture the feel of a shell. I like to think it both captures that feel and takes it in a different direction. The purple colored clay is Darkstar a 'wild' clay from North Carolina, it interacts with the rutile blue glaze to provide a wonderful pooling of colors. The side and back of the rest, reflect the layering and barnacle-impact texture found on shells. Although designed as a spoon rest, my wife also uses it for her teabags, and others have served appetizers and used them to store their rings and earrings. This is a representative picture.
The pots are high fired (2,400F) stoneware. They are wood fired in a wood burning kiln for over 24 hours. As the flame crosses the pots, iron is drawn to the surface so the flames 'draw' permanent flashing marks on the pot, and the ash melts to form a glaze. All work is food safe, and dishwasher and microwave safe.
If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the pot, you can return it for a refund within 30 days of purchase. No refunds after 30 days.
