Another competition, held at the AGM, is for the Bill Pinney Trophy.
For 2018 the competition will again have a common theme. Grinling Gibbons carvings were very much based on nature and included flowers, fruit, vegetable and animal/fish, i.e. items from your local supermarket. So this is the theme for 2018 and to carve an item to include one (or more) of these items in a block of lime no bigger than 9” x 9” x 9” (230mm x 230mm x 230mm for the metric minded). It can be in-the-round or relief. For example you could carve a trussed chicken, an apple, a bunch of flowers or a combination. John Vardon should be contacted if any queries.
