Gerhard,

 

Absolutely beautiful work, as usual.

 

I find that your pieces are invoking "aquatic" themes for me lately. The multi-layered bolster carving appears distinctly "gill" like to me. I'm reminded of the beautiful set work they did on the classic Disney film, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

 

You continue to be an inspiration. Thank you for sharing your work with us again.

Even more awesome than usual. B)

Man, you never disappoint! Absolutely incredible in every way :o

Your style is unmistakable, and every time I see your work, I just have to stop and stare.

Thank you for your continued creation of art expression. Simple, elegant, and powerful. Very hard to exhibit all three. You capture the essence of all three with each piece. I love your work. It inspires me. I can look at it for a long time and still see new aspects I didn't see before. Thank you.

thank you all for your kind posts!

I´m glad you like it.

 

@dave,

your post is really interesting-

you see ´aquatic´ themes in there, some forumites in another forum found a bird, another one ´lord of the rings´- look...

...now I`m brooding over MY intentions during the carving...???

I wanted to continue the flowing lines of the blade over the integral-part into the grip.

this developed an organic look allowing many interpretations, ´cause it is found everywhere in the nature.

Well,

 

I was raised in the commercial salmon fishery. That "theme" get's sort of hard-wired into your brain.

 

Take a look at the "scultping" of the head of a king salmon and I think you'll see what I mean:

thanks dave for the picture- you´re absolutely right!

same organic flow, same lines, even the surface is the same.

 

my next similar knife should be named `the king salmon´! :)

Gerhard, to accomplish what you do regularly requires a rare mixture of qualities. Talent, skill and determination.

 

It is a uncommon thing to have the talent to design such beauty in the form of a knife.

 

Just as rare as the talent to design such works, the skill needed to perform the different tasks in the creation of such art.

 

Then the high standard to execute with materials that at best are hard to work shows uncommon determination.

 

You, sir have all three in spades!!!! Bravo!!!

 

Chris
