Hi Dick... Will you share what you found interesting on suiseki aging in the video?  In several instances, it glossed-over more than it revealed.  Viewing the underside of many treasured Japanese suiseki,  the effort spent in aging all-sides (including the underside) is apparent, despite the observation of the very astute Osamu Komatsu, for whom I have very deep respect.  

I've heard that Osamu Komatsu did not survive the latest reorganization of Nippon Suiseki Association.  If true, it is unfortunate.  As a hard-working director with easy foreign language skill, he has been among Japan's VERY BEST suiseki diplomats.  I thought of him this past Saturday on the World Bonsai Friendship Federation's "World Bonsai Day."

Dick
A picture i.e.video is worth a 1000 words.  In this case, I would say more like 10,000.

Chris you've had the passion for this hobby and probably what I find interesting is just happenstance to you. I love this hobby but find very little in the way of good solid information. So anytime i find anything out "there" I tend to ingest it as if my last meal.

I do love this series as it covers (granted many generalities) but at least something on subjects I find hard to find.

I enjoyed the video very much, to see other peoples suiseki on the bench is interesting for me, also to experience the joy of the owner, who like many other has all the patience in the world, when giving stones the ageing by water and sun...
To see european harald lehner in the video was also nice...had just been together with him, and other people who live the way of the suiseki, at the ESA convent in Wroclaw....I was very pleased to see ageing of stones like this, is a common thing for the ESA members in europe.

To see the underside of the stone in the video was wonderful...it was realy showing off the stones age. Only the center of the natural bottom did still have the original color. ageing from the water had worked it selves undrer the sides of the stone, highlightning the entire stones old splendor.

It is said a stone should be turned only one day, once a month...this is to make sure the stonelover still understand the stone has a buttom,  that has to be respected....this is particulary important, when a underside of a stone has been cut or worked on, a natural buttom will talk for it self....it have never been the goal to give both sides the same ageing, it is a misunderstanding...A stonelover who hold a old suiseki in hes/hers hand, without the daiza, will highly appreciate, the stones signs of, it always had this side up, and the buttom dawn, aged like the stone in the video.

Kind regards Yvonne
