We had a heck of a time deciding on the Editors’ Choice winners – and the Grand Prize winner – in the 2017 PWM Excellence Awards. There was so much outstanding work from which to choose. But we had to pick…so here they are: The Editors’ Choice and Readers’ Choice winners in each of the five categories, led off by the stunning work of Al Spicer – recipient of the Grand Prize. (And stay tuned for the 2018 content – we’ll start taking submissions at the start of the year).

Grand Prize

Morning Glory Demilune Table, Al Spicer

Bessemer City, North Carolina

The grand prize goes to Al Spicer for his demilune (half-moon) marquetry table (shown above in ful), featuring on its top a flowering morning glory vine in various veneers. The legs are solid sapele with holly stringing and an accent bud, and the apron and top are pomelle sapele with a border of quartered sapele.

Spicer began his career as a photographer and spent 36 years working on the visual side of things in newspapers.
