Jeweller John Edgar: Stone Engineer
The polished stone works of New Zealand jeweller John Edgar reflect his deep interest in the contemporary use of natural materials.
Working in pounamu (greenstone), greywacke, and argillite, he moved beyond the concept of adornment, seeking instead to ‘relate intensely to people through the mind and the heart’.
Filmed in 2013 for the exhibition Ngā Toi | Arts Te Papa.
