Hello Yvonne
The picture shows the stone very well.
When there is snow outside, the reflected light indoor is magnificent and is very good to make interior pictures.
What is written on the box, can you give us the translation?
A Danish stone appreciated in Japanese traditional way!

It will take at least one month before I can go back to daizacarvings, as I have too much work at the time...cant wait.
I never showed you this flint, standing 20 cm. tall....It is actully my very first big stone, and daiza. It is carved from one piese of mahogany, and painted black, with a antique finish...may not be visible on the photo.




Kind regards Yvonne

enjoyed the Kiribox feature. interesting side story. How exreaordinary to have your box so nicely represented. Always appreciate your sharing Smile

Our stone group has a display up at Weyerhauser Bonsai. Each saturday we have one or two reps there to answer questions and work on daiza's. Can't say it's lead to any new mmbers but has been well received by the visitors.

Hello, Yvonne!
It's the first time for me to see a stone not completely sitting on its daiza.
I do not know about stones and I always thought that they should be comfortably sitting on their seats Very Happy

Hi Alexandra

It is "many" years ago sinse I carved this seat...My thoughts back then was, It is danish, there are no rules Smile, I have learned something else sinse.......Back then had I seen bridgestones did not rest compleetely, it was the same with shelter stones, often do they not rest on a smaller part.

What this kind of stone is called, do I not really think about, I just take it as it are, and enjoy I managed to ballance the stone very well back then.
Before I did this first carving, had I been felting the daizas, as I was not happy about the thought of beginning to work with wood...I still like, and exhibit 3 felted daizas in my home Smile

Kind regards Yvonne

Hello Yvonne.
This small stone appeals to me, lovely color, i would have taken this one to.
This must be a flint.
The opening at the top is in the middle, but because of the shapes at the left and right section of the stone
i do not mind that much, it still has enough quality i feel.
An interesting new one in your collection, it will be easy to combine with a smaller bonsai.
I notice you chose for a strong horizontal approach for the daiza.

Hi Sunip

I am happy you like the small landskapestone...I found it in the small area were i have found all theese flint in the same, by iron in the water, collor. But this one does not appear to be flint, the buttom is sandstone, and the upper part, that took the irondye very well, is not flint....I showed it to a friend of mine, and he think it is limonite, it looks like it is the right observation...but...it is not something I find in my area, strange.

I thought the upper part of the stone was fine grained sandstone, polished by the rapid waterstream it was found in

This sentens of your do i not understand "I notice you chose for a strong horizontal approach for the daiza."
Can you say the same in other words? Smile

Hello Yvonne,
When the parts of the daiza at the left and right arrow stretching outwards, the whole gives a more horizontal feeling,
when the daiza is more narrow, the horizontal effect is less.
It is only where you want to have the emphasis on, but this is something you are aware of i am sure.
Anyway i like it.

Danish slopestone standing 23 cm wide, and 9.5 high and deep, in my newest daiza.
Despite the rough surface, would the stone not ruin a nylonstocking, if it was rubbed against it.

front

on one photo is the stone highlighted, and on the other is the daize looking the best....maybe one day, I learn to take a good photo

Hi Sunip

When making a daiza, do the carver very often have to follow the stone....I made a very wobbly drawing....

The lines in the stone is flat rounded, also look at the backside...so I made the daiza flat rounded.....had i used your suggestion, had I not used the stones lines, but gone against it.

The daiza has the cut rim...it was needed, as the stone had this flat rounding, and for being able to do the same on the daiza, did i have to make the daiza wider, as this uncut stone need a fairly deep daiza....lines like the rim, makes slim...and I wanted to let the daiza look low.

Many times I want to make something else for a stone...but when i am working on it, do i have to change my idea, as the stone want and need something else from me. Not always visible before the carving, but I am slowly learning to understand.

Kind regards Yvonne

Hello Yvonne.
Thanks.
Yes uncut stones are a challenge.
To be clear, my drawing was not a suggestion to alter the daiza, only explaining what i wrote earlier about a remark before.
Anyway, it triggered you to write something about your thoughts on the design and i agree with this.
Explaining thoughts on a particular design can be helpful for everybody.
Another result of such a rim is that there is a subtle accent, it is a little stop in the movement that prevents that the daiza would completely mirror the stone, something that is less attractive i feel.
Even a complete mirroring of a stone could work in rare occasions as no stone is the same,( i do not intent to make any rules here, how about a rock mirrored in a lake).
In your case the daiza is not completely mirroring the stone, only a bit and this works lovely as it allows the stone to connect to the earth in an elegant way.

Hello Yvonne.
I noticed your newest and am still thinking about its special qualities,
the possibilities of Scandinavian granit as viewing stone source.
You are quit active making daiza also this newest daiza must have been quit a
chalenge like where to place the feet.
I will try to post a picture of my latest daiza on a stone i found on a beach last year and did not show before.
Such an excursion would be helpful i think it makes you more aware of good locations
and where to look for in the different stone types like the way they brake and behave under erosion.
What qualities they develop over long periods of time and so on.

Hi Sunip

i look forward to see your newest daiza Smile ....with my newst daiza, did i not have problems with the feetplacement, it was easy with all 7 of them.
I try to have as few as possilble, and prefer a uneven number in the front, but it is not a must...also do i want a legs not to be in the center of the front.
It is very often a matter of the visuel decive, if I may say so....one stone I had a problem with, was the last small stone from my previus trip to japan....you said it looked like a bird, or eagle....I gave this small daiza 5 legs....4 was visuel from the front...to the stones actual features was they placed right, but visuel, would 3 have been better, as the stone changed its front in the making of the daiza...the touch and rubbing effect, gave it a visuelt diffrent front, wich would have been better. and I may carve a another daiza in the future for the stone.

Kind regards Yvonne

Hello Yvonne,
Yes i see the problem.
The two dimensional picture would suggest three feet visible in the front but the birds belly is coming to much forward and is asking for another foot, well it sounds like playing daiza.
Maybe some subtle shape changes of the daiza might make three feet in this front acceptable?

I found this big granite in Sweden last year, it has been in the garden , my intension was a garden stone, but now is the doban unused, and i think it could be a nice mountainstone indoors, as it has no sharp edges, and the patina has the same age all ower the stone.

standing 26cm tall abowe the sand

front

side

back

side
What do you think of the stone as suiseki?, and what do you see in it?...it could go in a 10cm deep daiza...how could the design of a daiza look?

This bird is on the japanese doban...do any one know the name of it?, and what it stands for?

Kind regards Yvonne

Bird

Post  lennard on Sun May 19, 2013 7:51 pm

Hi Yvonne.

The bird looks a lot like the Phoenix:

http://saltspringantiques.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=43

Don't know if it is the carving but I also see a bird in two views of your stone?

Can you also explain the patina being the same as important?

I see the stone as a bird of prey looking back over it's shoulder at us. I like the ruggedness of the stone. I would prefer it on a daiza rather then in a suiban. And that is because i see an living creature in it's shape I think it fits better in a dai then a base of sand as if it looked more mountain like. I would love to see the dai a smooth black lacquor finish to contrast with the lighter grey color and ruggedness of the stone. I can picture it on a higher elevated stand as if perched on a mountain crag looking over the valley below.
If I chose to put it in a display, I would love to see a scroll with an impression of a beautiful blue sky with lofty white clouds and maybe in the foreground of the display a small tenpai on a jitta with a hare as something a bird of prey might be looking for it's next meal.
