Local Jade Carver Donn Salt Making History in China

Great news in the NZ Herald today.
Out of 2500 entries Donn Salt's White Dragon was awarded the silver medal in China's national Zi Gan Bei jade carving competition held at the end of September 2013. Donn is the first person outside China to win such a prestigeous award. Not a small feat considering China's thousands of years of jade carving history.

Congratulations Donn Salt!

The Coastie had featured a story about Donn Salt and his work in issue 80, sending him off with our best wishes as he departed to exhibit at the above mentioned competition in the city of Suzhou, eastern China.(click image below to enlarge)
