How to make dishes and spoons?

MAKE A CLAY VESSEL

1 Make flat clay, round bottom. To make the vessel stable and durable, the bottom must be thicker than the walls.

2 Make partitions from a roll of clay.

3 When the walls are quite high, smooth the end of the roller with your thumb, that the rim of the vessel is even.

4 Smooth the walls with a wet hand. When the dish is dry, burn them on fire.

 

MAKE A WOODEN SPOON

1 Cut a piece of fine wood grain and start planing it according to the grain. Avoid coniferous wood, because it breaks easily and breaks easily.

2 Always cut with a knife from yourself, to avoid cutting yourself. The spoon should be the correct size. The thickness of the shank does not matter much.

3 The most difficult thing is to cut a dimple. Be careful, so as not to cut too much wood, because then the spoon will break easily. Smooth the spoon.

MAKING A BOWL FROM WOOD

1 Cut the cup out of a piece of wood or growth. Growths on trees can be very hard, then it takes a long time to make the cup. You can speed up the work by carefully burning the interior with hot coals.

2 Pick out burned wood, then put the coals down again and blow gently, make them glow.

3 Look after, so that the coals do not burn through the bowl. Also be careful, so as not to knock a hole in the bottom with a knife or make it too thin; then it breaks easily.
