Jade Country by Theo Schoon

Paperback, 1973, 143pages , good condition, cover glue open at spine

""Theo Schoon came to New Zealand where he lived for some thirty years; here his diverse background and widespread interests led him to Maori art as a field of study. He played a major role in the recording of the art forms of the early Maori, locating and photographing ancient rock drawings previously unknown. Theo Schoon is acknowledged as a world authority on the growing and preserving of gourds, carving into them the intricate patterns learned from the Maori art of wood-carving and tattoo and applying his own stlye to them. He finally turned his talents to jade, designing and carving many beautiful pendants, blending the Maori with his own unique style into objects of distinction in this national gemstone material. His 105 colour plates and six pages of drawings show the wide range of his study, observation and experience in this fascinating story of jade" Please click here to ask a question
