Materials

ceramic clay, glaze, 4 Inches Long overall, 1 inch wide bowl, handmade by Marsha Neal Studio

I love these new handmade ceramic spoons! The idea came to me as we often have family or friends come over to visit, and we offer a hot beverage (coffee or tea) usually and I wanted to have something special available for them to use when they are adding their cream and sugar.

Sure regular tea spoons work well, as do disposable stirrers. However with kids in the house, tea spoons get used up quickly for cereal and yogurt, and it bothers me to have disposable (to me) stirrers because they do end up somewhere.

These handmade ceramic spoons are individually handmade by me. Please expect your spoon to be slightly different than the images above as I have a few press molds (also handmade) and stamps that are used.

HOW I MAKE THESE:
I have made my own press molds that I press the clay into and remove the excess. I then clean the edges and let them set up a bit before pressing in my hand carved stamped images. I then remove the spoons from the press mold, clean them again to make sure the edges are very smooth, then they set up and dry for the first bisque kiln firing.

After they are bisque fired, I am able to hand paint each one with a ceramic glaze over the entire piece. They are then suspended in my kiln and glaze fired to around 2232 degrees F.

ABOUT THIS LISTING:
This listing is for one of the small ceramic spoons similar to what you see in the first three photos. The fourth photo is your glaze color choice (they are glazed both front and back). The spoons measure just over 4 inches long and have about a 1 inch bowl.

The designs in the second photo is from Left to Right:
Spiral Flower
Spiral Paw
Bowl Spiral
Neck Spiral

There will be more designs coming, and I am planning on adding my chocolate stoneware clay with its own line of food safe glaze color choices.

The last photo shows me using this size spoon to stir in the cream into my coffee. Stir. Rinse. Set on the counter (for some reason this spoon sitting rinsed on the counter does not bother me like seeing a plain teaspoon on the counter).

CARE OF SPOONS:
Please hand wash these ceramic spoons. The surface will not scratch with a scrubbable sponge if you need to use one. They can be soaked in very hot water too if you have something stuck on it.

Do not bang them around with your other more dense flatware. They have little holes on the end, and can be displayed when not in use by hanging them on a small nail on your wall (or whatever arrangement you have).

Please keep out of reach of children or grown people that have a habit of whacking, tapping, or smashing things as glaze is glass on top of a ceramic surface underneath. These are pretty durable, but not indestructible.

US Customers:
All packages will ship First Class or Priority Flat Rate. I purchase my shipping labels through Etsy and you should receive a notification that your shipment has been shipped, and the tracking number will be in that email.

You may also request insurance for your package before your package ships or in the message to seller when checking out in case of loss or damage.
Add (to be determined on the value of your shipment). I do ship most packages insured without any extra cost (on orders up to $50). And it is up to you to contact the USPS with your tracking if the item has not shown up to file an insurance claim. Please let me know to so I can do what I can on my end.

If you are in a rush for your item, you can also request that your item is upgraded to USPS Flat Rate Priority Mail for your item (as long as your item is ready to ship and also, as long as I have not already shipped your item - I do tend to ship the same day).

International shipments:
There has been a huge increase in International shipping from the US as of the close of business on 1/26/13 AND again on 1/17/16.

US First Class Parcel Packages to international locations vary by weight and destination. On Average $11 to $16 USD.

Priority Mail International and Global Express are both considerably more.

I do not add insurance or delivery confirmation to international orders, I can only provide you with the US Customs label to show when I shipped your item, and when it leaves the US. You may request additional insurance for your shipment when you place the order.

If your package does not arrive to you, I cannot ship out a replacement order for no charge as there is nothing I can do to make sure your item arrives to your doorstep. This is why insurance is an option.

If you are not ok with this, and want to cancel your order, please do so immediately as I often ship the same day.

I also understand that many packages are taxed when you receive the item. Please do not request that I falsify information to avoid you having to pay excessive tax amounts. This is illegal, and I am not willing to pay the consequences. Please do not even ask.

All international shipments are processed through Etsy and USPS so the value of your package is entered directly into the computer and printed on your label. Nothing shipping international is processed hand written here in the US anymore.
