Excellent stones displayed and a nice insight into Fabrizio and Marco's daiza technique. Thanks for posting.

Hi Mathias... I like your stone with meandering, horizontal layering. Is it a Wuling (Chinese) stone mounted in a well-crafted, modern, Japanese-style daiza? If the stone was collected in Europe, it is an exceptional stone in texture & color combination.

Hi Mathias,
Thank you for posting.
What a pleasure. I appreciate so many of the stones displayed.
Is this an annual event? I would love to give it a visit.

The stone that draws me the most would be this one.


Thanks again.

Hi !

Chris, my stone is a gift (Marco Favero). She comes from France (South of the Alpes), and I have made the daiza with plane tree. This daiza was difficult to make !

Jeremy, yes it's an annual event, always in the same place (Sainte Tulle), on the south of France, near Aix en Provence. It's always on the beginning of June.
This year, a collect was programmed but there is too much snow where we want to go (2800 m altitude). A new collect is foresee on september.

Hi Mathias... Wow! Marco is a generous friend. He gave me my first Ligurian stone, and it deeply aged in color (as some do more than others) by just being left alone; Marco knew its potential. That was a delightful surprise. He gave me another Ligurian stone landscape-view stone with a rose-colored limestone band that is among my favorites; you can feel the warmth of the hillside! Most importantly, Marco shares deep feeling & true friendship. His friends become your friends & you share the joy of caring for Marco as though he was in your family. I am moved to hear of anyone he embraces.

Marco's gift of languages is one of those talents that propels him. When visiting his home in Turino, Italy, I got to see his library. The older books in French on Japanese gardens were AMAZING.

I once stayed in Bonnieux as a central location for visiting southern France. It was before I knew Marco. Every time I left town to go in different directions, I would find myself later at the foot of a hill with the sign: "Menerbes: One of the Most Beautiful Towns in France." It seemed you couldn't leave Bonnieux without landing at Menerbes in about 20 minutes. Often, the roads would become narrower & narrower until they transformed into bike or walking paths. Even the little Renault that I was driving (a zippy, fun car in the mountains!) was unable to proceed. The natural light over fields of lavendar & in nature were glorious to view. There was much to see that I subsequently regret missing. Perhaps, I profited by not being focused on creeks & stones, then... but I need to visit there, again.

One of the delights of your stone exhibit is the inclusion of a few bonsai. My viewing stone group meets at a bonsai museum, but for our somewhat lengthy exhibits, only a few very small complementary plants are displayed. I prefer the bonsai & stones shown together, but as separately important, individual objects for contemplation. This appears nicely done in your exhibit!

Hi Mathias... An antiques shop which I visit recently revamped its website. When I saw articles made of ridged, reishi fungus, I thought of your stone's color & texture. Visit Kagedo-- a Ridged Fungus Hanging Vase.

Hi HUNG-TRAN ,

Yes I agree, but mathias followed our suggestions on Forum Suiseki Force&Beaute' in making daiza
and for him it was the first daiza.Like you see, mathias was extremely skilful.
See the stone before daiza:

Hi Peter,

thank you so much for your kind appreciation, these stones are the first good exhibit in French because they are native stones
for greater part; not the first and second stone which is a Ligurian stone from my friend Fabrizio Buccini.
We hope to share better next year.
Kinds regards,

marco
