Cast your vote Russian Turning Miniature - 2020.
The intro of the article is a work of the artist Thomas Anton Geurts.
Perfection and harmony in miniature wood turning.
The call for applications for the Third All-Russian Miniature Wood Turning Competition has ended and the voting period has begun, and preparations are underway for the awards of the winners of this stunning competition.
Read about the 2019 competition here.
The first two contests showed that in Russia there are a lot of gifted and brilliant masters and self-taught people who are not alien to beautiful forms and perfect lines. If you flip through the albums for the two past competitions, it becomes immediately obvious that in 2020 the participants have shown unprecedented heights of skill in all respects.
Turners and artisans of Russia showed a virtuoso mastery of a lathe, they mastered the synthesis and mixing of technologies and materials. In addition, most importantly, the participants of the competition intuitively follow the rule of the golden section: proportions, shape, line, color - reveal and emphasize the integrity of the finished work of art. The masters follow the idea of the great Mark Vitruvius - "benefit, strength, beauty." Most of the participants in the competition sculpted their products for use, they are strong and durable, and the beauty of the lines and shapes is admirable.
One hundred and two masters presented their products to the competition. Among the participants of the competition, there are children and adolescents from 12 years old, as well as girls, women, men of mature age up to 80 years old. This year interest has finally awakened in the competition "Miniature Turning" in the creative community among professional wood artists. It cannot be said that the competition has become widespread. The competition is not discussed at every corner, and is not shown in the news of Russian Mass Media. However, it has become a landmark event in the creative professional communities of the post-Soviet space. Famous designers, artists, architects, looking through the competition works, are looking at individual authors of outstanding works, and the leaders of regional craft and creative associations would consider it an honor to have many of the participants in the competition.
I would like to note that the organizer of the competition, Petr Moskovtsev, made many efforts to attract the attention of the applicant participants to the design, format, and description of the competition works. In this, some of the companions of the volunteers assisted him. Many of the works did not pass the preliminary selection due to numerous violations of filing, size, poor photo quality and other reasons.
Until November 10, open and anonymous voting for works is going on. The works have a number. Voting is anonymous and no one knows the author's name. The organizers of the competition have simple programs that track the cheating of votes by the name of the IP address, by the number of likes per unit of time, anti-bot filters and other tools that, instead of cheating, lower the rating of this work as unfair competition. Therefore, the award will be fair, and the violators will simply leave the race without the right to participate in the next competitions.
The Assembly of Artists, Craftsmen and Craftsmen This year the Ah World Assembly on its two resources covers the work of the Miniature Turning competition and participates in voting and in rewarding the nominees. In the chat, WhatsApp АРТ Ассамблея Assembly Ah World there is a closed vote of professional artists. The voting results will be published on November 10, 2020.
The organizer of the competition Peter Moskovtsev from Novorossiysk speaks and writes. «… For the third year in a row, the All-Russian Miniature Turning Competition has been held, the origins of which were born in a small turning group of the VKONTAKTE social network. During these three years, a team of like-minded people from among the authors, sponsors, and lovers of turning art has gathered around the competition. From the very first steps of creating this competition, the companies Rubankov, Enkor, Zhivitsa, support us. Now this year companies JET and bryUkner-shop. ru have joined. We are actively promoting the idea of involving professionals from related fields of applied arts in the competition. We carry out active campaigning of interested people and involve them in voting in the competition. We actively welcome and expect professional assessment from masters who are not associated with the art of turning, but connected with creativity through the Ah World Assembly and through the Faculty of Art and Graphics of the Kuban University. I myself have been associated with creativity all my life, first as a photo artist, now I have completely gone into the art of turning. I believe that an artisan (in a good way) needs a buyer, and a creator needs a spectator. Therefore, at the end of the competition, the best works will be shown at a real exhibition at the Joiner's Festival in Moscow, where Rubankov regularly invites us. Only with the development of the trio, artisan - master - creator is it possible to advance the art of turning. Each trend from this trio is supported, and developed through other areas, of applied arts.
The competition is only approaching the level when the process of artistic creation of masters acquires some meaningful features. In previous years, the overwhelming majority of works were simply removed “from the dusty shelf”. Now in 2020 there are works made specially for the Miniature Turning competition ...» End of Quote.
Petr Shatailo - artist, designer, wood artisan, heads the commission for counting votes and determining the nominees. The Ahmir website https://ahmir.ru/ presents all 102 works with a brief description of the work. The description is rather an encouraging, emotional, positive message with an advance for the future, so that the participants in the competition are encouraged and not offend. Therefore, epithets - brilliant, outstanding, wonderful, magnificent, stunning, excellent, breathtaking, inspired, sexy, dizzying, magical - will be more often than neutral or even negative epithets to works. Words - ordinary, everyday, ordinary, boring, will not be applied to works by definition. All works are good and all works are worthy of praise and respect.
What are the judges guided by and what is the benchmark-standard for the artists of the Assembly, who vote for this or that author?
What are the expert voices from the Ah World Assembly based on?
1. The master's eyes are accustomed to seeing harmonious line and classic works of art.

4. Experiments of bold innovative solutions, previously unseen and impossible, are considered the main criterion for selecting winners.
5. Poor work does not mean that the author is not worthy of praise. This means that next time he will carefully read points 1,2,3,4.
Conventionally, the participants in the selection of winners divided all works into six categories. This does not mean that works do not move from one category to another. Until the end of the voting, the works will still migrate, but extremely rarely, since it is necessary to explain why this work is worthy of moving to another category.

83 Elm. Coating - oil wax Borm. Candy work. For candy and candy, quite a decent job. Moreover, if you put a portrait of the master next to them, then the children will be afraid not to carry sweets, because they are harmful.
89 Vase made of apple and ash, shellac lacquer finish. Enthusiastic work. Delight in sweets.

96 Sugar bowl made of bird cherry spallet, lid and top of mountain ash, oil.
Profitable sugar bowl. Arrival does not mean income, just as profit does not mean income. Nevertheless, this profitable sugar bowl sets its owner immediately for profit, since the master still has a hundred of the same pieces in stock, which will be sold like fried cakes, bringing income.

Now the fourth category is great.
5 Oak. Oil Zhivitsa. Enthusiastic work. Delight comes when you mentally draw a more elongated top and a crown with a crown.

18 works in the sixth category.
As the description suggests, there is a huge difference between the first category and the sixth category. Nevertheless, there is a subtle difference between the first and second categories, just as between the fifth and sixth categories; you will not notice the differences even in half hints.
So where is that yardstick, that standard?
Where is the model to be followed?
Below are examples of high art.
Choosing the shape, profile, bending line of the product, the artists take the high antique art as the standard. The lathe only repeats the line that the miniature lathe artist conceived.
If an artist of turning art examines the profile of a Greek amphora or a Russian jug, he will see that these lines are similar to the appearance of a beautiful feminine girl. Each pitcher has its own hips and slender waist, neck and ankle. The sculptors did not forget the architects of turning miniatures to emphasize the navel of their creation, which is located on the line, which by called the "golden section". Therefore, in the manufacture of this or that jug or vessel, amphora, the muse for the master of turning art is precisely the image of a mother or wife, beloved girl or daughter. If we turn to the etymology of the name of the Georgian vessel, it means the mother-jug in translation.
Form and color are a single whole, contained in the content and name of the object.
Choosing between modern forms, lines, silhouettes and classic (old) forms, the miniature-turning artist follows his intuition and his creative style, the author's handwriting.
Thus, he reveals and shows his inner world through the emotions of seeing, touch, pleasure for the audience.
There is the concept of "dirty color, faded color, dull color, indeterminate color". The miniature lathe artist works with solid color, clean line and golden ratio.
A hint for seekers.
Social networks and Internet resources where you can borrow samples of high art.
