The stone is about 14 inches long. The display table is faux marble.

Hi Mike,
I like the stone and the stand, but I am distracted by the gaps under the stone for some reason. I presume the stone is cut (which I don't mind); if it were cut "perfectly flat" and did not have gaps, it would look nicer. That said, I would love to have it on my table as is! Very Happy
Best, Todd

beautiful stone. I'm more of a traditionalist when it comes to presentation. I like to see dark daiza's or suiban
with darker sand. But like my other hobby (Koi) items placed on shows or exhibits are but a day or two away from being appreciated at home. The rest of the year the item should bring joy and satisfaction to the owner
in a manner a part from what other's think Smile

Hi Mike,
The picture does not allow us to see much of the shape and atmosphere of the nice stone.
When the mountain top part would be a bit longer it would increase the beauty of the stone,
now the top and the plateau part are to much of the same size.
For me the table is not helping, i feel Dick Benbow has a point here.
regards, Sunip Wink

Very beautiful, good shape, color, texture! the Daiza should be a little deeper to give the feeling of naturalness, as the stones cut from Japan.

Mathias, I'll admnit that my reply was somewhat "smart alec". Thats an English phrase for "sarcastic".

What I should have said is that to show a bonsai, much work is done to the tree to make it into a bonsai. Including much "cutting". Why should preparing a stone for exhibit be any different?
I know that cutting is a "bone of contention" (reason for argument) among stone people. I believe that a pleasing display is important, however it's achieved.

But a cut stone is just that! A stone that has been altered by the hand of man is traditionally less aesthetically appealing than one that is as found. I can appreciate cut stones, if they are done in such a way that the cut is not obvious, but when it is, it is just as bad as badly machine carved bonsai deadwood. A stone that shows no obvious intervention is always more appealing to me.

Mike,
Your Stone looks interesting but two things really bother me. To me, the cut edge exposed completely dominates the display and prevents
a Suiseki view. The faux stone to real stone placement does not elevate the display either. I envision something like Mas Nakajima and Janet Roth's Suiseki Art,a non traditional display where a cut stone is sunk into a wooden board with a Wabi Sabi feel. Care has been taken to fit the Suiseki to the board and the edge of the cut stone is concealed from view. A like display would, in my opinion, elevate your stone greatly. Just my thoughts.
Regards,
Mark

Hello MIKE PAGE and Mr . MARK ,
Mr. MARK , You are very reasonable : CUT STONE is an act of technical ... need to be concealed it away before viewers ... That is IF we want to enjoy the full of a CUT STONE , viewers must be completely forgotten role story CUT ...
