I made Taos Spoon Rest from slab-rolled stoneware clay.  I cut the template to a size that can serve several purposes:  Spoon rest, salt and pepper shaker tray, small tray for cheese or butter; even a soap dish.

The glaze “Taos” consists of overlapping blue, green, cream, and gold glazes.  And the technique I have developed for dipping, pouring, and now daubing, glazes often results in a dynamic reference to landscape that I feel is the spirit of Northern New Mexico:  Blue sky, green pinons and sage, cream clouds, and gold sunshine.  Sometimes an animal, butterfly, or hidden figure appears.  For this series, I really had fun dipping, pouring, and slinging the various glazes to create a composition.  They are pretty enough to stand just as they are on a shelf, coffee table, or side board.

Taos Spoon Rest fits conveniently on the stove or dinner table.  Use it to rest your cooking or serving spoon; or, serve butter, cheese, or sushi.  Use on the vanity as a jewelry catch.  Use for individual bread plate or dessert plate.  Buy a handful and stack them like plates.  And they are dishwasher, oven, and microwave safe.  (Allow a refrigerated dish to come to room temperature before placing it into a hot oven or microwave.)

6.5″Long x 4.75″ Wide.  Makes a great gift for birthday, holiday, house warming, and any occasion.  Give the gift of handmade pottery and jump start a collections; or, rtart building your collection!
