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。

No signage, no so-called official website, even no personal business card, we first got to know about Mr. Lyn and his modeling workshop by word of mouth too.  Since then he has made models for most of our stone statues, carvings and sculptures.
