HOW TO ORDER
Much of the (negative, intaglio) carved detail of our molds can only be appreciated when the mold is used to create the positive relief cookies.  Gene and Allen often use clay to be certain the designs being carved as as functional as they are decorative.  
Carving faces is challenging but enjoyable as each face (and each carving) is unique!  

Click on the thumbprints below to see ENLARGED DETAIL 
as this will help you to better appreciate the individual hand carved quality of our molds...

Visitors of our website have commented that they often see a negative (mold) image when looking at a positive (cookie) image... and vice versa.  The eyes and brain are easily confused by such images and shadows as Gene learned on his first flight over the family farm in 1949.  His eyes saw a bomb crater but his brain realized it was just a large haystack!
 These carvers will take the credit for the carved molds...  However, 
YOU GET ALL THE CREDIT for the fancy picture cookies and 
gingerbread figures you shape with their hand-carved molds!

Note the difference in the two angel molds.  This can be seen better in the enlarged clay casting photos  of 
the faces shown here! Hand carved cookie MOLDS are not "cookie cutter" identical as are resin molds.
