Photo: Best In Show -- Phil Brown -- Curly & Spalted Red Maple Vessel -- 5.25" X 17.75" -- $850 -- Juror's Statement: Choosing this piece as Best in Show was especially difficult since so many pieces stood out. I finally decided on this piece for the following reasons: 1. Technically very well done; 2. Aesthetically pleasing; and 3. A smooth finish that accentuates the beautiful rippling texture and grain of the wood.
