CLUB COMPETITIONS

At the 2014 AGM, John Whitehead proposed a monthly competition on club demonstration nights, and offered to sponsor a prize. Gordon Malan seconded and volunteered to donate to the prize fund as well.

Competition categories agreed so far are as follows:

  • October 2014 Bowl
  • November 2014 Weed pot / bud vase
  • December 2014 Christmas competition, 3 categories:
    1 Hollow form; 2 Spindle turning; 3 Other
  • January 2015 Candle Holder
  • February 2015 Vase / Hollow form
  • March 2015 Decorated bowl
  • April 2015 Natural edge item

December 2014
Hollow form, spindle work and "other" items.

The Christmas competition ran in three categories. The winners were:

Hollow form - Brian Wrigglesworth for his spalted beech jug

Spindle work - Keith Nellis for his candelabra (sycamore and ebony?)

Other - Gordon Malan for his walnut winged bowl with lid

A couple of photos below. I had to leave early, but Gordon Malan sent me photos of the winners, with apologies for the blur - obviously he didn't take them all as he was a winner himself.
