Improving this problem, the worker finds this smart way which is to make a hole in the spoon to hang it in the kiln, it does not only save the space but also help to fire the spoon evenly. Is not it convenient? Furthermore, it avoids to scratch it when hanged.
All in all, the hole in the spoon is only for easy molding.
