NEW ARRIVAL

A TRIP THROUGH TIME... CAPTURED IN JADE

A large, spectacular flower jade disc sculpture, carved from some of the most wonderful New Zealand Flower Jade we've seen in a while. This sculpture tells a wonderful story about the formation of the stone. It is carved from a slice of stone that is cut from the outer rind into the centre - from the youngest part of the stone to the oldest. This reveals the influence that the surrounding mineral environment, and the effects nature, have on the development of the jade, and on the colour and structure of the stone.

The rind tends to have the most 'character'. It reveals the mineral influence on the colour, translucency and hardness of the stone. As you move from the outer edge into the centre of the jade, it becomes more uniform in colour, harder and more translucent. A fabulous example of New Zealand Jade!

A TRIP THROUGH TIME is carved from a glorious piece of New Zealand Pounamu - a piece of flower jade from the Marsden region on the South Island's West Coast. This is a spectacular sculpture - a beautiful design, beautifully carved and simply presented in a brass bracket atop a piece of recycled native New Zealand Rimu.

Place this piece with a soft light positioned behind it and it glows. The dark green part of the disc will light up and glow - a beautiful, mysterious and fascinating piece!

A TRIP THROUGH TIME is a fantastic showcase piece - New Zealand Flower Jade and a sculpted stand in Wood.

THIS IS AN ORIGINAL PIECE OF CARVED ART - WE HAVE ONE ONLY
