Great landscape images in very small stones (?). These are so striking as images and enhanced for me by not being cut. Have you decided how to display them or do you think of them as stones to be handled and passed among a gathering of friends. If you have several of these to share and friends who are open to landscape images, there seem to be many possibilities for creating a unique form of appreciation not so dependent upon a shallow seating as established in suiseki practice.

Hi CHRIS CO CRHANE ,
Many thanks your articles , I've been learning from these articles .
The last stone ( small lake ) and this stone that i sent to the following : They ' are the stones intact ( uncut ) ,
( Because i do not DAIZA for them , I have put it in the sand ( sable ) and took pictures them ... ) . Hopefully I will quickly make DAIZA for them... then i will send to the forum and you ' ll be looking and evaluating them...
Thank you ,
Best Regards ,
Hưng - Trần .

Hi Hung-Tran... I prefer seeing water pool & mountain lake stones in water trays if they are large enough. In Japan, my eacher instructedI that wherever the water appears to spill over the pool on the front of the stone determines the directional flow for these suiseki. The water flow is more important than the mountain contour.

That is clearly a choice. "Tradition" is invented; it is not an Absolute Truth. Feeling the atmosphere of your stone, imagine the largest scene possible and it will capture the aura of suiseki. The scene should be boundless. Suiban often contribute to this... but having open space without a tray also creates this feeling. Morimae demonstrated that by taking a ceramic slab from under a stone in a critique at the recent Intl Stone Appreciation Symposium in Hershey PA USA. Without a distraction (the slab was colorful), the impression of open space increased dramatically!

I've a small mountain-lake suiseki which because of its size, has been shone in a shohin (small size), multi-tier stand. It is more a companion to other objects, there. The feeling is different as a companion object. It mostly expresses coolness (in a season of heat) rather than the grand view of nature shown by suiseki as a principal display object.

Hope that helps in your choices.
