Our fun sea turtle spoon rest is useable art! This round handmade ceramic spoon rest has a notch for the spoon. The bowl shape catches any gloop from your culinary creation, keeping your stove tidy. A raised image of a sea turtle swimming in blue glazed waves adorns the inside of the spoon rest.
The sea turtle spoon measures 5 inches in diameter and is glazed front and back. Every spoon rest is food safe and easy to clean with soapy dish water. A spoon rest is a useful gift for anyone. It will both brighten up your kitchen and keep it clean.
I have added a hole at the top of the sea turtle spoon rest. You may hang it on the wall as a decoration when not in use. Collect several spoon rests and arrange them on your wall as decor! The crab spoon rest would be lovely with the cat spoon rest.
Handmade & painted sea turtle spoon rest; ceramic, food safe and functional.
I roll out clay and press it into reverse relief tiles I made from a master tile. This process is like making a print, but using clay rather then paper. Next, I press the turtle relief surrounded by raised waves into a shallow bowl so if the spoon has gloop on it, that will stay in the bowl. I cut a notch for the handle of the spoon. The spoon rest dries and is fired to bisque. Afterward, I paint in the details with underglazes, adding the aqua flow glaze that defines the back ground texture. Finally it is fired once more with clear coat that seals the clay body in a thin layer of glass. This guarantees it is food safe and durable.
