This spoon rest is wheel thrown in a speckled brown stoneware clay and glazed in shino glaze. There is a spiral design pressed into it as it is thrown. Ordinarily I smooth out spirals in the base of my work but the spiral looks really good on a flat functional piece like this. This glaze color is a rusty orange-brown color. It is a creamy orange color in the recesses of the spiral, and a darker brownish orange color on the surface of the spiral and the rim. It has a smooth little notch for the handle of your utensil to rest on. The spoon rest is 5 1/8 inches wide and 3/4 inch tall. Fired to cone 5 in an electric kiln. Food and dishwasher safe.
