Author Synopsis :
At the age of 14 Pan Binghen began working with the Qibaozhai Studio in 1926, and apprenticed under the famous craftsman Wu Menglin in the art of making coral and other types of ornaments. He would soon accompish his own work due to his hard work and determination. In 1934, he won a Gold medal at Nagoya Expo, Japan, with his square vase and wine vessel. As early as the 1940s, Pan earned a solid requtation in Beijing`s jade carving circles for his singularly exquisite skill.
Pan has revived the long-lost technique of pressing golden and silver wires with inlaid gems, and revitalized and refined this technique. Pan is famous for his extraordinary craftsmanship and the panoply of themes in his work. His works depict solemn and simple forms, vivid styles, and magnificent and unique designs. His entire opus including figurines, flowers, birds and animals impress observers with their harmony, elegance and beauty.
In 1962, he held an exhibition of his jade carvings at the Chinese National Museum of Fine Arts in Beijing. Most of Pan`s works created after the fouding of New China have been collected by the Beijing Museum of Arts and Crafts.
