Family Tree Spoon Rest 003

  • Image 1

Product Description

This spoon rest was very fun to make.  I used a cream colored glass as the background color for the spoon rest.  I then used high-fire enamel paints to paint in the tree and other fine details.  Once this was acomplished the spoon rest was ready for its first firing to fuse the layers of glass and enamel paints together.  Once that firing was complete I wet-worked the piece to smooth down any sharp edges and get the piece ready for its second firing that will turn it into a spoon rest by slumping it into the spoon rest mold.

This spoon rest measures 8 inches in width by 7.5 inches in length and 1.25 inches deep.  All of my dishware is microwave and dishwasher safe unless it has gold, silver, or dichroic glass added into it.  I will always state in the item descriptions weather these things were used.  If these things were used in the dish it would not be mircowave safe.

The really exciting thing about this series of dishes that I offer to my customers is when you purchase any of the dishware offered in the Family Tree Portfolio I will include a special glass-line pen with the dish.  (You may specify the color of the pen from the pull down menu.) Then whenever the family gets together all family members use the pen to add their names along the tree.  Once the signatures are dry you may place the piece on a cookie sheet in your own oven and bake the item which will permanantly adhere the signatures to the piece.  So the Dish then becomes a TRUE Family Tree!!

Obviously I have created the Dishes to stand alone and I consider them beautiful before any signatures are added, but it gives my customers the option to make their dish unique and personal.  

To bake the signatures on the dish please follow the instructions on the back of the pen I send with the piece.  

To choose your enamel pen color for the dish use the pull-down menu.  The first pen color comes FREE with the dish. I have added the option for 2 additional color choices.  Each additional Enamel Pen color will be an additional $6.00.  I will send a separate Paypal invoice for payment of the additional pens.
