From welding pipelines to precision stone-cutting – bringing high skill to high artistry – that’s the path this artist has taken.
Since impressing Indian art show judges for the first time, in 1993, Wes has become famous for his distinctive, colorful and three-dimensional, award-winning designs.
Working only with the finest natural stones, he cuts and sets them in gorgeous combinations, as here.
Using pale pink coral as the primary material, each top-quality, precious stone is impeccably cut and beveled, by hand.
The gorgeously delicate tones of the angel skin coral are countered by the vivid hues of the red coral, sugilite, black jade, lapis, and turquoise stones – all natural as well.
A narrow, natural opal adds multi-colored sparks to this rainbow of glowing color.
In a special touch, a lustrous red coral cabochon is placed offside, further ramping up the vibrancy.
Impeccable workmanship combined with extraordinary materials of the highest quality add up to another masterwork by this renowned artist.
