Jade Artisans

0 Jade ArtisansA small shop located on the main street of Paekakariki, just north of Wellington in New Zealand, is the home to a creative couple who design and carve the wonderful jade found on the West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island, better known as ‘Greenstone’.

This stone has been used for centuries by the original native Maoris for ornamental and industrial use long before he country was colonised by Europeans. They attached a strong spiritual significance to the stone owing to the many hours of labourious work needed to carve it with their primitive tools.

This short film looks into the early cultural history of the stone and how it is carved today with modern equipment. Pieces are available for sale on their online store at http://www.jadeartisans.com

Jade carving industry booms in Suzhou CCTV News

0 Jade carving industry booms in Suzhou CCTV NewsChina’s Suzhou is home to exquisite garden pavilions, and also finely carved Jade Sculpture. The earliest jade pieces found there date back to five or six thousand years ago. The trade was highly regarded in the country during the Ming and Qing dynasties, and led to the development of its distinctive characteristics.

Suzhou’s jade wares are like the city’s famed horticulture: small, exquisite and finely polished.

Made from high quality Qinghai green jade or Hetian white jade, the Suzhou jade art is steeped in ancient cultural tradition.

Pieces are carved in classic patterns, or take on themes of traditional culture.

Like this set of seals which sit on an altar-shaped pedal, and surround a piece used to pay tribute to heaven and earth.
