  • Sometimes the simplest ideas are a challenge to understand.  A spoon is such a common tool for humans.  Perhaps it is easy to take the production and development of spoons for granted.  I have been using this tool all my life, although I have never really considered the way it is held and designed, nor had I considered the multitude of ways humans use it.  
     
    NOTES: Pulled handles with a slight curve feel the most natural.  When using the spoon for scooping, then a deep bowl/scoop with a handle that angles forward is best.  These spoons were made with Riverside Grit Stoneware clay and glazed at Cone 6 in an electric kiln.
