Sirius's suiseki

Post  sirius on Fri Jan 07, 2011 12:01 pm


Hello everybody, my name is Diep Dang Khoa, I am Vietnamese and I'm living in Vietnam now. Very nice to meet you here!
It's the first time I join to this forum and post the first topic. I have an offer to join this forum from my new friend in Virginia. I surf on this web and I'm interested in this page very much!
Please look at my collected suiseki and give me an advice about the daiza because I'm designing to the new daiza....
Thank you very much!
(PS: My English is not very good, so that is very kind of you if you correct me, thank you!)

Dear Sirius

Your stone looks interesting. But the photo is too close up, I can not see the whole stone, and most of the wooden base....Is it two stones?
Please send a nother photo.

Kind regards Yvonne

Hi Sirius... Is your friend from Virginia a member of Potomac Viewing Stone Group, which meets in Washington DC?

I have asked before about the styling of wood seats for stones that have stepped sides. Does it have any meaning other than decorative? The steps carved in seating remind me of the stone steps (ghats) on India rivers as well as in gardens. They also recall productive plant terracing on mountain sides.

Dear Yvonne Graubaek,
Thank you for your viewing.
My stone is only 1 stone not 2 stones. I'll post more clearly pictures later.

Dear Chris Cochrane,
Yes. My friend is Young Dzoan. Previous days, I don't know about international suiseki. When I met him, he does show me about global suiseki and widen my knowledge. Now I start to creat the daiza for my suiseki.
Thank you very much for your attention!

Hi Sirius,
I like your stone..i think it will also look good in a suiban display,only my comment is the daiza is a little big,maybe smaller?to give more impact to the stone.Keep posting and thank you for sharing.

Hi Alex, Paul, Sirius... Your observation, Alex, is what suiseki enthusiasts can & should grasp readily. The stone's fitting to a seat will be enhanced for suiseki-style appreciation when the stone takes precedent & the seat is nearly absent except for its functionally balanced & close-fitting support.

Still, there is good reason to look beyond suiseki aesthetics in stone appreciation, and Sirius's stone is arguably stronger for his stepped-wall, two-socket seat. The stone is very engaging as it is mounted, & the seating does not limit the viewer's imagination. Focus would arguably move more to tunnel/archway (domon) between the two sockets if this were mounted as suiseki. The landscape view would move from a more remote peak above clouds (present mounting) to a more settled near-view scene (detailed landscape view) anchored to earth or sea.

Sirius's friend in Washington DC (Young Doan) is connected to Potomac Viewing Stone Group. Young's stones are exceptionally evocative and engaging in their surface textures and patterns. Each of Young's Vietnamese stones is seated by Sean Smith (Pennsylvania carver) in a Japanese-style daiza. Sean's technique is superb, and no one would think the stones ill-seated. Combining large figural & abstract stones as well as towering mountain stones with suiseki seating is not unnatural, but it adds a layer of sophisticated viewing which can be jarring when the seating suggests "look at me as suiseki," but the stone suggests, "look at me as figural sculpture, a Chinese scholar's contemplative object or other allusion."

Hi Paul... Thanks for expressing interest in several threads. Are you in the Ameriseki stone group? It would be a great to have a correspondent share their activities with browsers & contributors on IBC.

Hi Sirius... If you decide to mount your stones as Young Doan does, choosing stones which strongly fit suiseki-style will add to appreciation of the view. I prefer your mounting for this fine landscape view instead of a suiseki mounting. Perhaps, Peterbrod will offer a illustration of a daiza mounting in suiseki-style; he is reliable in illustrating good daiza design.

Thanks, Peter, that is an exceptionally well-considered design for suiseki appreciation.

You recommend aligning the entire scene to ensure that the underside of the arching span is level to the earth (or sea)? Your daiza will greatly focus emphasis... :-)

Hi friend, I like the elephant - very good quality of surface. Color of Daiza is very light, it would be good to make it darker.

Kind regards Milan.

Hi Milan, I'll design a new daiza for them and they'll be made darker in the future! Thank you!
