Double Condiment Server
Sometimes I let the clay tell me what to do. The other day I was making pinch bowls and the small block of clay wanted to divide in the middle so I just started pinching it that way, making a double pinch bowl with divider in the middle. Then I thought it needed a handle in the middle. Then I thought to make two spoons. I came up with this double condiment server. The spoon on the right is better in the scoop part than the one on the left. But now that I have a prototype, I'll improve on my making techniques next time.
I was thinking of salt and pepper server on a stove top for this small one. You can't see in the photo, but the handle is hiding the dividing part in the middle. Now I'd like to make more of these but in larger sizes. Perhaps one for red and green salsa, or two types of jam or dip. Gee there must be hundreds of uses for these. Maybe this isn't a unique form, but for me it is. Sometimes it pays to listen to what the clay has to say. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
