Hey Sunip!
No. 2 IMHO
looks like a water turtle.
appears solid and heavy,
very nice color with shell pattern.
front a little counter clock wise,
to better be seen horizontally... Basketball

Hi Sunip

Congratulations with your nice finds Smile

The first display has a nice suiban and sand....but I dont really understand why you placed the stone in the middle, when it has a flow to the right, and therefore should be placed a little to the left...

It is not turtleskin you have here...yours are cracks...turtleskin is a stonepatern made from two diffrent kinds of stone, a soft and a harder.

Kind regards yvonne....look forward to see the stones mounted in daizas

i am sorry to see such kind of press paper called suiseki. Every stone cannot be a suiseki. If we are talking about viewing stones anyone must be able to see something, in this case I don't see nothing else but a stone. I am really sorry, if Iam hard sometimes, with a better english I would find some sweeter ways for telling what I whant to tell. We must respect an ancestral art, Iam sorry to tell it but stones wich can become a suiseki are not founded everywere, we must take care of it. Rolling Eyes

Hello Yvonne,
Because the stone is 16 cm. wide and 15 cm. deep, i experimented with a tray i have around.
This is unusual a ROUND one with a deep brown glaze.
Someway i ended each time in the middle like a literati tree, but i placed it now a bit to the left to see how it feels.
This tread is indeed about the seashore stones i collected, the placement is not considered to serious,
that is why the whole setting is not portrayed.
The most stones have an indoor yoseki which is coming nicely already but ofcours not ready yet.
About the turtle skin; i thought Chris indicated this on a stone with a similar pattern, well i must have misunderstood that one.
The color of the stones are darker then the pictures show, anyway with the daiza production i wait till the yoseki is a bit further.
Sort of progression tread.

Hi Sunip

Many thanks for your answer...now I understand,...the suiban is round, and not the ONE for the stone...you are right, it was about new found stones, and not the display...I just know, you have a very sharp eye on displays...so i was a kind of dissappointed Smile
The two next stones are very nice...the last has a really nice surface, and will become a great suiseki...look forward to updates....Will i meet you at "Noelanders"

Kind regards yvonne

Nice stones, both of them...you have been having a great time Smile

I dont see a problem with the last stone...the maindirection is to the left....In my opinion does a stone not need to have a direction...it can stand by itself, in harmony...in a display would I not use a acentplant or anything else, as this would ruin the stones caracter, and make the viewer seach for a direction.

Kind regards Yvonne

On the other side of the stone the erosion shows as little holes.

Do you mean erosion? To me corrosion means something else.

Hello Harria,
Well these are stones i found in France this spring, they are not from Japan.
Because your remark is interesting, i would like to share the light of your eyes.
Let us consult together.
Please tell us more about the meaning stones have to you.
What is the use and study of stones to you, how you come to your conclusions?
I would like to sense the tea you have in your bowl and how it creates an universe in your mind.
(As you mentioned suiseki: i placed a link earlier to a Japanese suiseki show.)

Looks like a japanese suiseki to me.........
Kind regards Yvonne
