GIA’s display of Perry Brent Davis’s carvings of agate and rock crystal quartz looks like a colourful seascape of otherworldly designs.  A master carver, Davis is known worldwide for his nature-inspired sculptures that combine art deco, abstract and surrealistic influences.  Davis and his team incorporate modern and ancient Chinese carving techniques into each piece to create larger-than-normal gemstone sculptures that emphasize the rich colours, ornamental patterns and internal features in each stone.
