The Waterfall Scroll that was sold

Post  Kakejiku on Sat Aug 11, 2012 9:58 pm

This is the one that was actually sold. It is more of a rill than a waterfall...

This picture of a brook or rolling stream was the one finally selected by the customer from the American Bonsai Society Convention in Denver Colorado, as the final piece they wanted to use. This sumi-e painting was also done by polish artist Mariusz Szmerdt. I am amazed at how the water comes alive in this simple painting...It is not easy to accomplish the movement of the water in such a medium.

The customer wished to use a rich brown earthtone cloth. I selected a Gold on Green ichimonji and the Kodai San Iro kakehimo which has a gold hue with flecks of green and black. The jikusaki is an ivory plastic piece.

Dimensions as follows:


Name in Kanji Name in English Size in Bun Size in Inches
天 Ten 116 13.84
上一文字 Ue Ichimonji 11 1.31
紙本の幅さ Artwork Width 94 11.21
紙本の長さ Artwork Length 116 13.84
柱 Pillars 16 1.91
下一文字 Shita Ichimonji 7 0.84
地 Chi 64 7.63
掛け軸の幅さ Scroll Width 126 15.03
掛け軸の長さ Scroll Length 314 37.46

Rock...I am sorry that some are put off by the Kanji, but I try to teach everything from the base language. On another bonsai forum I asked if anyone knew the characters for an Ume they were picturing so I could understand the meaning of the name, but no one replied. The English is to the side of everything...but further scroll part names may be in order to understand. Ten is the top portion of the scroll (Heaven) Hashira are the Pillars and Chi is is the bottom part of the scroll (Earth). I hope that helped. I also measure in the traditional Japanese style (Rin, Bun, Sun and Shaku) because of certain rules regarding measurements of certain parts of the scroll and then use an automatic calculation into inches.

I only send high resolution pictures to customers...because some use them in dojo's, bonsai/seki kazari/toko no ma displays etc. and do not want their pictures copied...so sorry....I think they are better in real life anyway as I am not a very good cameraman.

Stonener...Thank you for the kind words. I hope we can work on something for your wonderful stones in the future...Would be excited to see the Red Stone as the central piece of a display that you sent me a pic of earlier.

I think I need to clarify the question. I was not asking Rock where he purchased the scrolls from, but what style of scroll he prefers to purchase. There are 3 schools of thought in scrollmaking design. Each has some characteristics in the cloths, jikusaki, Kan, kake/maki himo used to design the scrolls. I belong to the Edo Hyougu school...but I also sometimes do things with American cloths that are not Japanese...

Design principles that are used by the framers (Hyougushi) are completely separate from what a person choosing a scroll for a bonsai display will be...

Especially when making a scroll for a bonsai display I try to think of the entire display such as tree, tree styling, Shoku/jiita (Stand/slab), Hachi (Pot), and accent to determine which scroll style and color combinations to use to make the scroll. I have spent hours on the phone for one customer so we design something that is versatile, simple and elegant...
This scroll is made from an American 100% cotton rather than silk...but purchased by a Japanese Bonsai Artist? Ironic huh...probably had to do more with Yoshimi's calligraphy rather than the scroll though Rolling Eyes
