This is quite a special piece I made as it's more sculptural and it took many hours to finish. The spoon depicts a bird eating a grapefruit, the bird being the handle of the spoon whilst the grapefruit is the head of it. It incorporates different sculptural elements (head, wings) as well as being decorated in sgraffito and having a textured layer of red iron oxide.

 

I had to remake this spoon 2 times as the first time I dropped it before putting it in the kiln!  ಥ_ಥ
