Assembling the photo gallery for the International Woodcarver Congress Winners is a mix of labor and wonder; it is, quite frankly, the greatest amount of work of any single article in WOM, and yet I know I’m going to see a lot of wonderful carvings as I edit the galleries. The 2014 IWC Gallery was no exception, starting with John C. Sharpe’s Best of Show winner. This edition has some 296 photos (twice that number if you count the thumbnails) including some of the best carvings you will see anywhere. In the winner galleries you’ll find 169 of photographer Marc Featherly’s excellent studio photos of the winners at IWC 2014, including more photos of the Best of Show winner.
In addition to the gallery of the prize-winning carvings, you’ll also find Marc’s candid photos from the Classes, Award Banquet, the Judges critique session, the Show floor, and other photos around and about during Congress.
As always, the photos in the winner’s gallery are clickable, and will take you to much larger versions of these great carvings. (Much larger then you’ll see in any paper publication.) The large photos will afford you the opportunity to really look at the winners in detail.
