Peng Shenchuan

Peng Shenchuan

Peng Shenchuan (彭深川) is the Chinese name of Portland State University Professor Jonathan Pease. Chinese language chop with three red characters; one filling the top half in the space of two, then lower right, and ending in the lower left. Commissioned by Carol Gwo as a gift for her professor. Carol supplied a box which she already owned and asked for a stone, which I cut to fit.
