Spoons are indispensable in the kitchen and dining room, but it is difficult to get hold of colourful, funky and unique spoons. So I decided to design and make my own fused glass spoons to add colour and fun to a jam jar, a sugar, condiment or ice cream bowl. These spoons are both functional and decorative and make elegant and unique gifts ready to spice up a kitchen or dining room. Each spoon measures 17.5 cm long by 3.5cm (head) and retails at £12 or the matching pair at £22. They are presented in a dainty gift box.
As usual, I start sketching the design. Unfortunately I do not have a wide enough range of hues in my colouring crayon set; so I decide on the glass colours and shades after sketching.
Fully fused spoons ready to be returned into the kiln and slumped into stainless steel spoon moulds at 670 degrees C.
