Washington Jade wins bronze in China! Our resident carver, Nathaniel Cook, has just returned from his trip to Suzhou, China, where he took part in the Zi Gang Bei International Jade Exhibition. He submitted two pieces for the exhibition: "Unity," an intricately carved vessel in Evergreen Jade™, and "Oracle," an abstract sculpture in Blue Dream Jade® and Washington grossular garnet. It seems that China has a taste for the blues, as "Oracle" won a bronze medal in the carving competition. The store pages for both of these unique works are up on Nathaniel's section of our website. You can find even more pictures of both "Unity" and "Oracle" on our Facebook Page.
Clambering for more information on Nathaniel's trip to China for the Zi Gang Bei International Jade Exhibition? Well, this month's issue of Rock & Gem is all about jade and features an article on Nathaniel's preparations to show off our Washington jade at Zi Gang Bei. He even made the cover!
