Eugen Manisor - Romania

Eugen has been commenting on my blog for some time now so it was particularly nice when he responded immediately to my request for photographs of work to feature on the blog.

Eugen is a teacher from Romania where there is a strong tradition of spoon carving and, as you can see from Eugen's examples, the tradition is alive and kicking. Many of you will already be aware of the films on Youtube of Ion Constantin, a Romanian carver who inspired many of Britain's most established carvers, so it is nice to have these offerings from Eugen.

Alder - captured rings



Lilac - love the paw print!

Thanks Eugen - keep it up and send us your new work to have a look at.
