The Master’s Exhibition was by invitation only and showcased the finest woodturning in the UK. The theme was Coronation which the artist interpreted in any manner. This category was not competitive, however the pieces were viewed by a panel including Nick Humphrey, Curator Furniture and Woodwork V&A, and Laura Chase, Curator, Decorative Art and Sculpture V&A, both at the Victoria & Albert Museum, and they made a ‘Choice Award’ before the exhibition opened to the public. The public were then given the opportunity to make their own ‘People’s Choice’ Award.
‘Choice Award’ by the V&A – Nathanael Griffiths
‘People’s Choice Award’ – Carlyn Lindsay
