Both are winners of the Ready Steady Turn competition at 10 Turners Turning, Richard in 2014 and Mark in 2016. But both have very different styles. Mark’s work features wood, mixed media, texture, form and colour, all of which are influenced by Far Eastern philosophies and cultures as well as the natural forms and textures found in nature. Whereas Richard comes from a long line of professional woodworkers and is a production turner, undertaking commissions for one-off prototypes through to large production runs, turning for furniture makers, restorers, architects, designers and joiners.

You never know, they may go toe-to-toe in a rare and exciting woodturning showdown, so make sure you put the date in your diary for this unmissable encounter.
