Pounamu Taonga

Queenstown. May 2009. Ajr
Last Tuesday I wrote a Meet the People piece about Invercargill-based carver, Nathan Jerry (scroll down to read that). His favourite carving medium is pounamu (greenstone or jade) and his works are usually based on traditional designs - as are his bindings, which are shown in good detail here. Nathan sells his work every weekend at the Queenstown Market and I must say it is a pleasure to come across such beautifully crafted pieces.
