    Wonderful shots, Richard.

    I like the jade carver and the inlay artist best. The jade carver has all those arc-like shapes that create a wrapping around the center of focus: brilliant composition. The inlay artist shows the complexity of the drawing, the eventual result, with some pieces just beginning to emerge to create it all. Great story.

    Cheers,
    Rick
