Large Granite Buddhist Statues by China-based ArchiStone

If you really want an exact answer to what our speciality is I think I can’t give you one.
In fact, our carvers are great at carving everything on natural stone materials to your desing drawings or even just a piece of photo.
An author wrote in his book about our stonemasons as “here everyone is a born artist.” I totally agree that.

PS
The man on the 3rd picture is my brother Emin. He’s responsible for all the production procedure in our company based in southeast China’s Fujian Province.

You are welcome to leave a message below or write an email to me at istonecarving@gmail.com if you like a quotation from me or just like to say you like our hand-carved stone statues.

Recent Relief project for a classical Chinese ancestral temple

These months we have been busy making relief plaques for the outside walls of a bigger-size traditional Chinese style building located in southern China’s Guangdong, which people call it Zong Ci in mandarin, but its function actually is beyond a temple, more like something for people from the same ancestor to meet and chat on a daily basis.

We are very happy to accept this big order. Relief carving is what we are best at. Our co-founder Haiwei had been working as a first line stone carver for more than 20 years before our company was officially registered. So we have zero tolerance of a carving of bad workmanship.

These relievo plates are of blue stone material. We carve it by hand using chisels and hammers and hand-held drills.

I will post some of them below. It’s suggested to zoom in in order to find the details of our craftsmanship.

You are welcome to visit us and have a cup of tea if you happen to travel in southeast China. Our town has a very beautiful sea view. I believe you will like it.

View our Haibo sculpting statue on stone

My frequent readers should have not been a stranger to the name of “Haibo”, the sculptor on this video, who is also a family friend, we knew each other since childhood.

After high school he entered into the stone carving industry drawing sketches on granite blocks. And for these recent years he spent more time between Dali and Lijiang, very fantastic tourist cities in the southwest of China.

Plus, he is also a great singer and can play several different musical instruments. You will have a wonderful day if you bump into him in Yunnan, also our hometown Hui’an, “the Stone Carving Capital of China” of course.

Japan Tombstone Shop call on China factory to resume sooner

武葳石材店井冈进

Manager 井岡進 of a Tokyo-based stone shop named 武蔵石材店 told ANN Japan that his shop had a shortage of tombstone because stone factories in Hui’an couldn’t resume production yet affected by COVID-19 novel coronavirus pandemic broke out this January in central China’s Wuhan, also, 5 of his clients were waiting for those monuments.

武藏石材店有5位客人在等墓碑

Following the Beijing News, another south China-based brilliant press Nanfang Metropolis Daily March 4th made an interview with Huian’s Stone Carving Association director Mr. WANG Zhi-gang. According to WANG, 95% of  gravestone supply in Nihon are imported from Hui’an, i.e., my home town, a place with a good reputation as China’s Capital of Stone Carving that American Prof. Bill Brown of Xiamen University MBA Center mentioned about Hui’an Art on his book Amoy Magic “everybody there is born an artist.”

Please don’t worry!

Quite a number of stone products companies including my factory have already started by February 20th since Hui’an is not a hard-hit region that as of today we only had 2 confirmed cases and both had been cured and left hospital respectively on Feb. 26 and March 2. Headstone wholesale distributors in Japan expect to receive their orders 3-4 weeks later.

New Date for 20th Xiamen Stone Fair

Xiamen Stone Fair Official Webpage

This year’s China (Xiamen) International Stone Fair is rescheduled for early June, which should have been held early March, because of the COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic in central China’s Wuhan and beyond.

As of March 5, there’s no new case report for the 18th consecutive day in Xiamen. And from the update China has entirely controlled its spread.

Let’s meet again in warm and safe June.

第20届厦门石材展延展

因受在武漢爆發的新冠肺炎病毒的影響,中國廈門國際石材展另擇日六月舉辦。

但是請放心,不僅是我省福建省無再有新的疑似病例,從每天發佈的最新數據看,包括武漢和湖北省顯然都已經控制住了該病毒的蔓延。

Shadow Carving Queen LI Ya-hua featured One Day of Xiamen-ese

有空的时候,李雅华也会自己进行影雕制作,但是已经很少了,因为毕竟这是非常费眼睛的活儿,再要当老师或指导

Ms LI Ya-hua, founder of Huihe Stone Cultural Park in Xiamen, praised as the Queen of Shadow Carving, featured in the 99th episode of One Day of Xiamen-ese for xmnn.cn, Xiamen’s official news portal.

出生于石雕世家的李雅华从小就感受到父亲的高超手艺带给家庭的荣誉,同时她也耳濡目染喜欢上石雕,没事就整天泡在石堆里,跟着学习雕刻技艺李雅华说,而目前的石雕行业,几个问题很让人忧心:一个是老一辈的石雕师傅文化层次不高,缺乏与时俱进的艺术审美眼光;另一个是现在的年轻人吃不了苦,不大愿意从事这行,存在技艺传承上的尴尬困境

Shadow Carving is one category of Hui’an Stone Carving, said to be developed over 300 years ago. Ms LI Ya-hua grew up in our hometown Hui’an county and moved to Xiamen when she followed her father on the construction of  “Southern Fujian Stone Carving Museum” Turtle Garden in Xiamen’s Jimei funded by Singaporean industiralist Mr. Tan Kah Kee, founder of Jimei School Village and Xiamen University.

2017年在厦门举行的金砖国家领导人会晤期间,中俄两国元首共同参观闽南非物质文化遗产展,展示了影雕作品《兰闺雅集》、《惠安女赶集》等。习近平主席陪同俄罗斯总统普京近距离观摩了现场创作,李雅华身着惠安女服饰,在现场雕刻一幅尚未完成的作品《惠安女赶集》。

Dressed in traditional Hui’an women’s clothes, Ms LI was demonstrating this our hometown Hui’an-only skill , which we call “shadow carving”, on a hematite stone board in the presence of Russian President Putin and President XI Jin-ping during 2017 BRICS Summit in southeast China’s Xiamen.

展馆里,四名身着惠安传统服饰的女子正在黑色石板上击打凿点,进行影雕制作,李雅华耐心对她们进行了指导

LI Ya-hua now spends more time on training students for the carving skills.

2001年,李雅华创办了惠和石文化园;2008年,惠和石文化园被确认为福建省文化产业示范基地;2014年,惠和股份董事长李雅华被列为福建省非物质文化遗产代表性传承人;2015年11月,李雅华创办的惠和石雕公司经过改制后成功挂牌新三板

For more photos about LI’s one day life, please visit http://zt.xmnn.cn/b/amoy/99/ at xmnn.cn, Xiamen’s official news portal.

开完小会,按照惯例,李雅华会到各个展馆开始走走看看,巡视发现运转情况和存在的问题

PS.

Xiamen is located on the west coast of Taiwan Straits. It’s also the host city of China Xiamen International Stone Fair that has been held for 19 consecutive years since 2001.

—— Factory Visit Invitation ——–

Our carving factory is located in Hui’an county near the middle of  Xiamen-Fuzhou expressway, about 40 minutes from Jinjiang and downtown Quanzhou, with very convenient transportation. So feel free to contact me when you’re around and intereted in how our carvers work on a hard stone by hand and chisel.
