The dai fever

Post  Ka Pabling on Wed Jan 27, 2010 6:49 am

I have been making daiza for the past three weeks for the stones That I have collected after new year, I was never warned that daiza making could be habit forming. The more I make mistakes, the more I am challenged to try again.

Here are some pics of my project, kindly give your comments so I could improve it.

Hi Padychitan... Your first stone is very elegant so I'd attempt a daiza of minimal mass which keeps the legs under the stone & retain its slightly undulating lip (nice fitting!). Approximating the daiza on a photo is VERY different from encountering what the actual stone requires, but here is a rough option if the natural stone bottom is shallow...

i agree Chris,thanks for your suggestion I have already achieved the most difficult part of daiza making in this particular stone, that is, the fitting of
the stone to the wood I thinks that is 90% of the job. I will try to reduce the mass. using the same daiza your suggestion is doable.

I am new to computers, could you tell me how you drew the daiza to my stone? could you include that in the tutorials? ty

Hi heven

Am glad you like the mountain stones.The stones we collect here are similar to your stone there, this is probably because our country used to be part of mainland Asia millions of year ago.

Before you do much more carving on the daiza, you might simply try staining it a darker color.

Hi Padychitan... The waterfall is an exquisite stone. Your close-fitting of the stone and vertical alignment of the waterfall in its upper tier are very appealing. They assure the stone image will be valued. My preference needn't be yours, & my illustration is clumsy-- it looks a bit like the egg cup about which I complained in another recent post. Perhaps, a less massive base than the original could allow more presence for the stone.

While preparing a presentation for my club's exhibit this weekend, I'm gathering photos for a PowerPoint preview. Another club member is exhibiting a stone similar to yours & accompanied it with a poem that he composed...


Staining the seating (as Jim suggests) could quiet the stark contrast between the stone & daiza. Keep the contrast discernable.
