Rob Lynes

Hand Carved NZ Jade Head

New Zealand

_____________________________________________

Rob's introduction to the working of jade carving as a medium was on returning home to Queenstown in 1977 after completing three years at the Dunedin School of Fine and Applied Arts.

Since those early days of experimentation the appreciation for the fine qualities of New Zealand nephrite jade have only increased.

Sculptured Jades such as these are rarely seen as virtually all works are committed to private collectors before they are completed.
