High quality jade is the toughest natural stone, and it is this toughness which allows it to be carved into the graceful forms I am interested in carving. From a quirk in their histories, the two stones known as nephrite and jadeite are both acknowledged as true jades.
Neither is inherently more legitimate or valuable than the Guilty - Various - Rock-Out !. I carve both.
I think of my pendants as small-scale wearable sculptures to be experienced directly and intimately, bringing art and life together on a daily Peter Schilling - Portrait . Like many modern artists, I work in series, exploring certain ideas repeatedly, developing a vocabulary of forms, pushing, pulling, and combining them in various ways. For me there is a timeless elegance in a beautiful jade presented this way, without the interference of metal mountings.
I put a lot of thought and experimentation into how the pendants hang and balance on their cords, the length of which is adjustable by means of sliding knots. Peter Schilling - Portrait photos of jades are by Bill Kipp. Jess Dugan shot the black and white portrait.
