    Hey Stranger,
    It’s Iean, you should have stayed on this side of the puddle when you had the chance. Ah Well… I’ll just have to drink the beer myself. Thanks for the lessons. I have made another blade, this one from Wyoming. I’ll send pics when it has evolved. Cheers

    Hi Donn.

    I feel at home on the grinding wheel. That is where “flow” happens for me.

    This (At Home) work is awesome! What inspired you to do it?

    Best Regards!

    Thanks Mark,
    These Guardian creatures seem to have evolved of their own accord somewhere back around the mid ’80’s. Initially as free carving in small greywacky beach pebbles, allowing the stone itself to dictate. Sounds like a typical cliche… never the less true. The small pebbles were followed by small jades and progressed to larger, 100 odd lb. andesite companions in the latter ’90’s. Many of these ET’s have emerged into this realm since. This ‘Entry Guardian’ being the largest to date. A brief word about it here. Mentors, Guardians, Guides, Seers from days of futures passed, as the energies suggest. The largest of these in jade is around a 38 to 40 lb. river float carved in ’04 and titled ‘Voyager’. It was of such presence I made a rubber mold for a limited edition of 25 only in bronze.
    A quick sequence of carving the andesite is illustrated here as well. Also the carving sequence of a Guatemalan Jadeite and Big Sur Blue were posted up recently.
    Cheers … Donn
