Korean stone appreciation

Post  Chris Cochrane on Thu Jul 01, 2010 3:47 pm

Do we have browsers (in addition to Marco Favero) who have particular interest in Korean stone appreciation? Marco & I have found a new stone friend (thanks to Jim Greaves) who wishes to explore traditional & modern Korean stone aesthetics? Send me a PM if too shy to share on the forum. Many IBC enthusiasts would appreciate knowing someone with Korean-specific stone knowledge or interest, so I encourage you to post to the forum.

Hi Ngoquangvu... I'm glad you recognize that website, which our IBC stone friend Marco Favero created years ago after translating Byung Ju Lee's article on suseok into English. The contents have been used by some giving Marco credit & others not recognizing him at all. It is a great place to start, & Marco continues to pursue more knowledge of Korean stones. Jim Greaves attends & assists with exhibitions of a Korean stone club in California. A member of that club is working to establish knowledge of traditional practice & is interested in Korean Yangban literati aesthetics related to suseok. I hope we have some IBC browsers who are knowledgeable re' suseok & will share.

Thanks for pointing-out the best information I've seen posted on Korean practice in-English.

About a year ago, an enthusiast. generously posted links found on an Asian bonsai/stone convention of several years back. It included articles & links to two Korean stone enthusiasts descriptions of historical & modern practice. The two authors offered less detail than Byung Ju Lee. They mostly referred to Chinese & Japanese practice as Korean practice. The articles appeared to be incomplete in describing distinctions of traditional & modern Korean practice.

Hi Ngoquangvu... Thanks for this latest link to a very nice set of illustrated Haeseok (Badadol) "Sea-collected stones," which could also be organized as mooniseok "pattern stones." Byung Ju Lee further notes that "Sea-collected stones" can be organized as "choosanseok" (perhaps choosangseok is intended but incorrectly keyed), but this reference is unclear.

To read Byung Ju Lee's original article translated by Marco Favero, begin here (the link above in the post above appears broken):
---NOTE: ANOTHER MODERATOR USING NORTON ANTI-VIRUS HAS REPORTED A WARNING BEFORE OPENING THIS WEBSITE. I've opened it with no apparent problem. / Chris---

Though the home page will not translate easily, a Korean site with many stones allows automated translations of many pages:

Hi Chris,

I do believe it is I who you are speaking of. I have been in contact with you, Marco, and Jim.

It will be my honor to inform the community about the aspects of Korean Viewing Stones from my eyes.

I am currently working on my website , www. koreanviewingstones .com , which is currently under construction. I will be introducing my book called "Viewing Stones, Korean Classical Concepts - 100 Natural Viewing Stones from Southern California, USA" on my website.

In the future, I am hoping to become a contributing member of your discussion group.
