  1. Re the detailed tutorials on facebook: You'd be surprised, a lot of artists post in progress shots and answer any and all questions one could ask about technique and tools. Likewise if one wants to know just ask and many people provide info on how to do something. I also use it to directly contact artists and get their tools and techniques from them, so far all have replied. TCP has some great info but then again maybe Ive just read it all already or my search topics are outside the realm of TCP. I havent come here from a google search in a long time. TCP has 2220 members by my count, thou

  5. So this place is pretty dead these days and Ive found some very useful groups on facebook. Our Workbenches Great place for all things related to making your work and has some of the best carvers in the world as members always willing to share advice. How to make tools, how to use tools, etc. Friends Of Jade Jade related group and the one I can find with the most members. Again some of the best jade carvers are members of this group and there are rough jade sales, pictures, carvings and also a great place to ask advice and share. Also fantastic inspiration! JadeNow, the Book of Co
  6. To anyone who missed the exhibit in Vancouver you missed a fantastic event! The talks were amazing, the carvings were amazing and the ancient chinese carvings were mind blowing! Great to meet some jade folks and talk about the green.

  8. Nice idea mate, like the etching too!

  10. The base is 13cm in diameter the disc is a tad under 11cm and 12mm thick. Attached is my artist statement and name.
  11. Yeah Im still getting my head around how gloss effects a piece. I think you've nailed it though the gloss detracted from the crossovers, and didnt give a good texture to the overall piece especially with the way it plays with light. The inside of the crossovers is gloss.
