[quote="Yvonne Graubaek"]During the summer I found this flint. It has a nice sice, and shape for a suiseki, it had been lying on the beach for many, many years, on what is now the buttom, perfect Smile, the stone is 21.5 cm long.

Hello Yvonne,
Nice to see some bigger landscape flint.
From the picture it is difficult to read the specific stone but there are some nice details.
In spite of the natural front you chose, i think there is a tension here between the higher massive part and the lower part;
they are both of the same size.
Because the lower part is moving in front of the higher part this is not that disturbing.
I am not sure turning would give the stone a better view?
As you said black stones have qualities but colored stones to, it is sometimes playing in a different field.
I must say Peter did a surprising find in your birdhead stone.
I am still scrolling back and look at your delightful different waterpool stone.

Hi Peterbrod

Many thanks for the drawing with a good suggestion.

Sadly sides are not nice for humanshape Sad

Is this view of the same stone better? ( mountain with lake)
What shape of daiza is best?





Kind regards Yvonne

Hello Yvonne,
Seeing this pictures, i much prefer this option of waterpool stone.
You show a dramatic change of the image and possibilities of the stone with these pictures.

Hi Sunip

Many thanks for your reply....I love the waterpoolstone too....I have more than one time addad water to the pool, just for my own pleassure. I have placed the stone where I often gets to see it Smile The backside is just as nice, as the front.

Photos can be dificult...And again, can I see, you have taken a really close look at a stone, and now give your oppinion, wich is correct, and very nice.
This also tells me, I must sharpen up Smile, and try to do a better job when I take the photos.
I am happy to tell you, the stones higher part is clearly bigger than the lower part in the real life.

Kind regards Yvonne

This is the daiza I started up on, before the frost....yeasterday was i able to continue the work, and the stone stands firm now.
I have a kind of idea how I want the profile. But I would be very pleased if you Peterbrod would give me a suggestion....also will I be very happy to see drawings from other people Smile



As you can see, have I drawn how the stone is resting the daiza.

Kind regards Yvonne

Hello Yvonne, Peter,
Nice, the toad vision.
When you turn the stone; (left top a bit lower),
i see an ancient Egyptian head as well.

On the earlier stone;
I do not know the stone but i am not sure about the upside down option?

I have been bussy today, and the design looks like this now....same shape as the Peterbrods suggestion, but with a rim. Hope you like it Smile

Hi Stonener

MANY THANKS, for your trust in me.....But it is very difficult to make a good ballanced freehand-daiza. The stone is heavy, and the teakwood is hard. ..Peters simple design, was very close to my wish, and I try to do my best to make it as Peters.....I find it is incredible hard to gett arround,to make the feet.
And it will still take some days before, it begin to look nice ( hopefully).

Kind regards Yvonne

Thank you to all contributing to this thread. I love it. The stones shown I can relate to much more than most because they are similar to stones in my area. The Asian stones I see are unimaginable to find in central America, at least where I am.

Hi Kora

After theese words was said,could I still find the beatyfull mountainlandscape in the the very nice stone Smile

But I could also clearly see the lady sitting on the rocky coast by the sea, with her head leaning back, and long hair ..

Peter landerloos liked the stone, and I gave it to him Very Happy

Hi Crust

Many thanks for your important reply.....I am very happy you like theese western stones, and can relate to
them. My danish stones give me a western identity as wievingstone lover/collector.

I know spetacular shapes and formes ( mountains) is more than difficult to find here...I may never find, but I love the hunt.

I have a couple of amazing mountainstones from China and Japan, but they are no longer my favourites.
( This is too strong words....I love the stones, and the memorys connected to them )

My danish stones may not be showstoppers, but they make me confident Smile

Kind regards Yvonne

Hi

The frogdaiza is finished, and the stone is standing 14.5 cm....
To carve this daiza was a challence...the stone wanted to roll backwards to one side, and the patern had to be placed at the same time in a ballance...it was fun.
The wood is teak. I gave it a little dye.
I hope you like the result Smile

Hello Yvonne,
I made the changes Peter suggested.
Looks better.
Not sure what the arrows at the feet mean though.

Hi Sunip

Thanks for the drawing, makes everything easier....I will make it a bit diffrent, the stones shape must be consideret more.
The arrows show the rounded shape of the feet, this I must also aim for in the rim....

I will go out and do the work in a minute...see you later Smile

Kind regards Yvonne
