Black danish stone

Post  Guest on Sat Aug 06, 2011 4:19 pm

Hi everybody

The other day, I went to the beach near my house, and found this very black stone..The stone has no recent chips.
What do you think of the stone Smile


Lately, when I was in Prague, I found this small stone in the river.



I hope you like the stones

Kind regards Yvonne

Hi Yvonne,

I'd like to see the black stone from another angle, as it appears there is a bit of a rise in the plateau. Looks like a strong stone with potential...what are its dimensions?

Best regards,
Norma

Yes, welcome back Norma. We've missed you.

Yvonne, I like the rise on the stone - it is exactly the shape I see in cliff faces on every Scottish island I visit and that makes it special for me.

Thanks Fiona.....glad to be back and I agree with you about Yvonne's stone....a higher point on a plateau stone is common and most natural.


Most happy to meet you, Yvonne, and I love your positive attitude! I took club workshops with Chiara Padrini this spring and it has refreshed my interest in viewing stones. She has studied the art of suiseki in Japan and most of what she conferred to us was the very strict form of suiseki, but she also shared her thoughts on other countries' stone art..... China, Korea, and Italy (her home and where she carves wonderful daiza).

Best regards,
Norma

Hi Yvonne,

I think the second one from the river has more characters.

The first black one's of good substance but maybe needs "raising". I read they raise stones in Japan by some technique watering or stream soaking.

Hi Truong

I also prefer the first stone....it has a lot of caracter.
As a viuvingstone is the shape also very nice/better. The stone is better than the photo. But sadly is it very small.

I dont know about the japanese raising of the stone tecknique. Can you explain, it sounds interesting.

Kind regards Yvonne

Yeah I also think it's potential.

The aging/refining process is called yoseki. Read about it here http://www.suiseki-assn.gr.jp/en/factors_3.html

Good luck Very Happy
