Hel­lo, Friends in Carv­ing -

Wel­come to the final issue of WOM for 2015.  This issue will wrap up 19 years of pub­li­ca­tion and we’ll start our 20th year with the January/February 2016 issue.  Twen­ty Years is a big deal, so we are going to be cel­e­brat­ing through­out the year.  Lots of ideas rat­tling around in the ol’ brain pan, but we are always open to sug­gests for way to cel­e­brate this mile­stone.  Feel free to use the con­tact form on the About page, or email me at womed­i­tor AT com­cast DOT net.

It was my intent to pub­lish the IWC 2015 Win­ners gallery in the Octo­ber por­tion of the September/October issue;  how­ev­er, com­put­er soft­ware update issues put my desk­top machine on the side­lines for a week or so.   Direct­ly that was resolved, a seri­ous­ly ill West High­land White Ter­ri­er (that allows us to share “his” domain) occu­pied a lot of our time, ener­gy and resources (read $$).   I’m hap­py to report that the West­ie, name of Jack, is recov­er­ing nice­ly, and we are final­ly back on track with time to work on this pub­li­ca­tion and even carve a bit.

Speak­ing of the IWC Win­ners — there were some extra­or­di­nary carv­ings in the com­pe­ti­tion this year.  I’m glad that I didn’t have to choose between the three Best of Show carv­ings.  Rick Harney’s Spunk is as fine a relief carv­ing as you’ll ever see.  (It was a good year for Rick; he took first, sec­ond and third in the Relief Carv­ing group.)    David Seagraves’s Artemis is a life-size carv­ing of the Hel­lenic god­dess of the hunt, wild ani­mals and the wilder­ness.  Air O’Smith, by Ter­ry Brash­er, is a car­i­ca­ture carv­ing that can’t help but make you smile.  Make sure you check out these and all the oth­er win­ners in the IWC ’15 Gal­leries.  Don’t for­get that all of the small images are click­able links that will take you to a much larg­er view of the carv­ing, with far more detail than any print mag­a­zine.

  • Pho­to Gallery - Inter­na­tion­al Wood­carv­er Con­gress 2015 Win­ners
