Critique Submission Information

As you can see, the evaluators have taken the time to provide constructive comment and encouragement on how the piece might be improved.  We have three more pieces that will be featured in upcoming articles over the next 2-3 weeks, but then the real fun begins!!!  The volunteers will have served their time as "guinea pigs" and we must then rely on you to participate if this feature is going to remain an ongoing and growing part of WTU.

So, this is the plan.  We have established an email address for members to send their critique submissions to:

critique @ woodturnersunlimited.com (remove spaces)

We are presently accepting entries for the next round of critiques until March 8, 2013, at 12 noon, Eastern Time zone, USA.  Any submissions received after the cutoff will be considered in the next round of critiques.

That said; please understand that the team will not evaluate every entry.  Since we have the dual goal of helping the individual turner and providing guidance to the general viewing public, chosen works will provide an avenue for general audience appeal.  Our members are diverse, with varying skill levels and it is important that we select a variety of works to meet those needs.

Those desiring a critique will need to provide the following:

  1. One photograph (1024 px, 125 kb max file size) showing a direct frontal view.  The initial determination will be made using this one photograph.  If chosen for critique, you will then be asked to submit additional photographs; details of which will be included with the notification of acceptance.
  2. A brief statement of the surface preparation and the actual finishing process used.
  3. A brief statement of the artistic goals, if any, in doing the work.  What did you wish to accomplish?
  4. Your experience level, including how long you have been turning and whether you have enjoyed any level of instruction.

We hope you are as excited about this venture as are we!!  It is rare that folks have the opportunity to get honest and constructive feedback, and we look forward to your participation.  

Start working on your submissions!!
