A Spoonful of Sugar

7 February, 2014

There’s something a bit fascinating about spoons. Their pleasing shape can be played with and distorted to create at once familiar and yet subtly altered objects. For a little while now I’ve been making a range of delicate willowy handled spoons like the ones below, in porcelain, stoneware and terracotta, and grouped together in clusters and sets.

The people at the excellent Craft Finder website, smitten with romance, have run a lovely feature on spoons this week, including my pieces along with beautiful silver and glass, spoons; all offering up their charms in tiny doses.

  1. These are lovely, Elaine. I started making spoons a while ago too. Really enjoyable.

  2. Lovely work, Elaine. I wish I were able to see it in-person over here. Have you ever thought of applying to any shows or galleries in the states? I think your sculptural pieces would be a breath of fresh air for us east-coast ceramic lovers. Cheers.
