The finishing touch for your painting is a seal – that clear red highlight that balances the composition, pushes the energy flow round the picture, and draws attention to the beautiful white space or the fabulous ink technique. Seals are lovely objects in themselves, carved from beautiful stone. They can have various meanings, including your name seal and leisure seals. I have had many seals carved in China.
I carve my own seals and teach seal carving on request.
The intriguing shapes of Scholar Rocks are highly prized, and would grace the scholar’s desk.
