I use a lot of bird imagery and I make a series of nest sculptures, so it felt natural for these to evolve from those.
I made this small bowl just as I do my bigger nest sculptures. I pressed stoneware clay into a mold. After the first firing I glazed it in black and wiped the high points. This not only gives it it's unique look it "gules" the piece together. I form the handle of the spoon as I add the black clay to the bottom.
