My Danish stones

Post  Guest on Wed Aug 24, 2011 12:19 pm

Hi friends

I could use some designhelp....

I have just carwed some of the daisa...the stone is going dawn to the line inside, so the design has to be a bit lower, and there after the legs.

After looking at the stone for some days, am I sure, this stone is " chinese mountain peaks ", in my mind.

Please help me design a profile in the daisa, to highlight this feeling.



Kind regards Yvonne

It is not easy to give good advise Very Happy before.....
I have been working like a bee for quit a few hours, and this is hov the daisa became.
I hope you like my result.

I painted the daiza black, as the wood was a bit to the red side, and the patern of the stone, is to the yellow.

Kind regards Yvonne

The mountainstone in the previus picture, and many more..about 45 stones, was found be me, near my home, in the last few weeks.
The stones was lying on a 100 m. long beach, a quet small bay, where no people go, and big waves, dont roll the stones forever and ever....close to all, has all a fab. patina...a little green on some of the stones, will have to be removed. All stones is placed on a table in my garden now, and is showered every day....A few stones is still on the beach, waiting to be collected
You may think it is unbeliveable....I too are stunned. This is some more of the stones....please enjoy

The bird below is quit big. Maybe 35 cm.
It has lovely schoulders and wings on both sides, the head has a gentle curve towards the wiever.

As usuall is the photoquality not very nice....I will have to wish for another camera.




I am planning to upload, and send 4 more replies, so please look again later

Most of the stones showed, will have a daisa later....But first I will make daisas to those stones in the garden who really will benefit, with having one.....The lady in the previus will benefit, very soon.

Next is a display, I call " Erotion " The stones used are of the same kind, and they will not fall apart, nothing is loose on them, but I dont think they shall be in the garden...it is better to take them in. No more rain and frost for them. The biggest stone, has 3 lovely parts, not viible on the photo...the display must be shown live Smile





This stone was used in the previus display too

This display, is with collourstones....In a good collourstone is black, red, yellow, and white present. I find my self very lucky, to also have found theese on the small beach.



To this display, I wrote a haiku

Sunset
Dragon fly high in sky ower mountain
in evening mist.

This is the stones







This is all for now....I hope you enjoy...The displays may need to be refined, if they go in exhibition. But this is a little about me, and some of my ( new ) stones.

Kind regards Yvonne

As I've already explained, I am only a dabbler in the whole area of stones so I am not really confident in commenting.

My comment is that I like the top stone in the Liberation and Erotion (should that be Erosion? erosion = the wearing away of something, eg rock, cliff-faces, river banks etc.) displays as it reminds me of an egg hatching. If I were using it in a display, I'd be tempted to have some sort of theme to do with hatching eggs - maybe using a figurine of an animal or bird instead of another stone. Or perhaps use your bird stone from another pic. But I don't know if using a figurine with a stone is allowed in the rules of displaying stones.

Hi Fiona

Sorry about the wrongspelling ( I am afraid you will have much more of that).. but it is erosion...
The story/idea with an egg hatching is very nice. There are so many displays hidden in all theese stones, I find theese days. " rules allowed ", it is guidelines, and I have no idea....if I want to insert a figurine, I will do it.

Kind regards Yvonne

In observation and reflection on your stones, you have found and were inspired to compose Haiku, I believe you have discovered the power of Suiseki, perhaps in time I will too.

wonderfull!

Hi Drgonzo

Normaly, I am more quiet with my stones...and at the moment, is the stones found, more rapid, than I like....but then again, the hunt is fantastic. And back home, am I looking forward to find their secrets. A few may be releast back into the wild, and some will I give away, as how many stones do I need, to be happy....But yes Drgonzo, I am dedicated to the stones.

This is what can happen, when a stone is shown to members of IBC... Stonener starts, and you Peterbrod, is drawing a naked lady on my mountainpeak-collorstone affraid I may have to give the stone away to a man now....or keep it, because you both made me laugh Very Happy Very Happy.

Kind regards Yvonne

I found a stone yesterday that my girlfriend sees a rabbit in and I see a polar bear, but if I turn the stone, Its an Island in a stream..the best stones are the ones that suggest and hint rather than state exactly what they are I think. Like cloud shapes as they always say..

Hi again Drgonzo

I think a poet is hidden in you, I am sure you will find many lovely stones in the years to come....I dont mind other people find new things in my stones, I like it, it is interesting....But I am not a man, and a naked lady is maybe not exactly what I wanted Smile It gott my head out of the poetic clouds, and brought me, a kind of dawn to the ground.

Kind regards Yvonne

This little stone, was also on "my" beach....It is a sightstone. One of my fauvorite stones. I have often seen them in Japan, but they are always very expensive....This one is danish, and I found it...thats much better. The little stone is 8.5 cm long, and 3.5 cm on the tallest point.
I carved the daiza from, what appeared to be a tiny piece of wood, but it became even much tinyer, as the work began to take shape.
It will take a while, before I try to make such a small stand again



The small stone, has the natural patina, and is showed dry.



Now I could finaly make use of the small old tower.



In the background is a small lake.

I hope you enjoy the stone.

Kind regards Yvonne

It no doubt takes a WELL practiced eye to notice a stone such as this among no doubt thousands of others, I would never have seen this stone if it were me standing on that beach. Well done! The natural patina is also excellent!

A few days ago, I found this stylish little "near mountain" stone", I like it very much, because the direction of the stone is gentle, and the top, who broke off way back then, is highlighting the direction, also is the stone gently comming towards you....in the daisa, is the stone standing 8 cm tall, and 9 cm. wide.




Please enjoy the stone Smile
After the photo was taken, was the stone placed in the garden again.



I used mahogany for this daisa. Sometimes I use teak.

Kind regards Yvonne
