Book Description Jade Arts, 1973. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 0909250006 Dust jacket condition: Very Good. Short neast edge tear to jacket. Else Fine. Very nice clean copy. Text free of highlighting and writing. Tightly bound. Jade Country is an episode in the life of Theo Schoon. Born in Java in 1915, he was strongly influenced from an early age by the arts and crafts of this region. He later travelled to Europe to study art and painting in Rotterdam where he was further influenced by European art. Eventually he 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. Through his passionate interest and understanding and his deep insight into Maori art, much has been done for New Zealand in reviving aspects of this neglected cultural past. 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 onto them the intricate patterns learned from the Maori art of woodcarving and tattoo and applying his own style to them. Another of his absorbing projects has been a photographic study of the fantastic wonders of nature in the Rotorua thermal regions which have inspired him in matters of design. 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. Some of these are illustrated in this book, and it is hoped they may inspire others to venture into the creation of distinctive objects in gemstones rather than the usual small cabochons so often produced by lapidaries today. 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. 143 pages.
