Well here we are! At the end of the process with just a day or two left to complete entries and submit photos!! This is my entry into the Jade Symposium Sculpture Category! Titled 'Hidden Within" to reflect both the colours of the Jade and how they change with applied light and the Bonsai etched onto the panels that disappear with applied light. The lighting is an LED light strip set on while light with a slow strobing effect to turn on and off. The fan dimensions are 8"L x 12"W x 1.5 millimetres thick - The light box makes it a bit bigger but not much. It also sits on approx a 45 deg angle for viewing. The light box is made from Yellow Cedar Burl. The Jade is from Dease Creek British Columbia. I particularly like this Jade because of all the "activity" & character within - however the black inclusions do cause a bit of heartache since they are very soft!! As always there are more images and video on my facebook page for those into that. Thanks Tom

Hi, I’m Clark and new to this group and wanted to introduce myself. I’m a ceramic artist and began working in clay back in the early 1970’s while in college. I've was introduced into jade by my wife, she has had a passion for jade for many years and in China has had tremendous access because of work and friends. I have been on a crash course for the last 7 years or so, meeting artists, seeing studios and looking at jade... tons of jade of all types, most of it really good stuff. I learned a lot, but also have a very lot to learn. My exposure to carving is almost exclusively from China. Most of my friends carve jade and some carve other materials, one of my friends is best known for his ice carving and he is responsible for a large project in northern China each year where they create a small city in ice, I also have pictures of a large ice carving project he did at the Astro Dome in Huston. He is living and teaching in the SF bay area and we are planning to do some ceramic artwork together, I’ll throw some forms for him and he wants to paint and carve the outside. These are a few pictures of my ceramic art and one in progress I started about a year ago and have stalled on. You can see a little more of my work and work from my friends and some studios on my web site www.thejadedealer.com. I will also post more pictures that I hope you find interesting, soon.
