Taking a shot at ladels

Recommended Posts

A great look and functional to boot. Good job. By the way, how did you sink the ladel and put in the two pouring spouts? Do you have a special swedge?

Very nice work.  The deep veining on the leaves is particularly eye-catching.  I've not seen it done like that before and really like it.

They are great workmanship! Personally, I think that they would look better with a slightly S shaped handle, the straight lines are just too sterile with the great leaf and cup at either end.

 

One thing that I have been taught is to "flash" on an image and see what jumps out at you. Sure is tough taking an old technician and making him an "artist".

Very nice John. I've always liked wrapped leaf finials and those are especially eye catching.

 

Well done all round.

Gorgeous set of ladles! Beautiful and functional design, like the pretty leaf accents and twists especially the double spouts. Excellent work!

The ladel was shaped on my trunnion swedge block. But a stump or a modified piece of pipe with the lip rolled will work. I cut the pattern for the ladle bowl with the two spouts and then used a v-swage and a narrow cross peen to shape the spouts.
