First, I received Eric's spoon. I was very impressed by his elegance and unusual ergonomic handle shape. Very fine decoration.
Today has arrived Werner's. The same thin bowl as Eric's, small size ( from what I imagined until now that is the optimal size of a spoon). German precision! Everything is in his place: nothing more, nothing less. Straight to the meaning of the spoon: a REAL EATER!
"From now on, I have to learn from the Masters!" I said to myself... (that means:"I have to try to copy these beauties" :) :) :) I hope that's OK for you, my friends ;)
I have to change my vision about a wooden spoon must look like.
For the last three years, since I begun to carve spoons, every spoon at the moment of carving, was "my best". I have tried different shapes, sizes ... I have tried some ornaments, more or less succeeded. I'm sure that if hadn't been these beauties to take my blanket from the eyes, it would have gone a long time to have this vision and to reach these forms.
Now, I realize that this is my ideal spoon. The shape I want to be able to carve.
If I will succeed or not, only the time can tell...

|This is not the best picture: the spoons are perfect equal in sizes :(|
|Even the tag from Werner's spoon, has a perfect spoon shape, decorated with tiny .... spoons :)|
