This spoon rest is wheel thrown from stoneware clay. The raven and top rim are painted on with black slip. This piece is then clear glazed. It measures 4 1/4" across and 1" tall. Potter's signature (G-Wiz) is carved into the bottom for that handmade touch. This spoon rest is food safe, dishwasher safe, and microwave safe. It makes a nice gift for yourself or a friend.
