Hi Peter

I could...
But this would not be to the japanese taste, and would take your eyes away from the stone.

As far as I know, Is broken pots in Japan only repared with gold, if the pot is very important and/or old....

I was given a broken early tokonamepot, I repared it, and gave it a little goldpaint ....but I keep the gold on the backside.

Kind regards Yvonne

Hi Peter

I see no reason for carving a wave in a daisa for a mountain, who does not let the wiever think he/she is by the sea.

It could be nice with "something" on the daisa, if the stone was a waterfallstone....japanese carvers sometimes do this.....To show more water, could the stone also be placed in a suiban, and let sand be the water.

Chinese people make wonderfull detailet daisas...and I would love to have a chinese waterfallstone, with all the "music" a carver can gett into the daisa.

Kind regards Yvonne

Hi Peter

This is what I thought you were thinking.....

A lot of carved waves, or only a little wave, is the same...it would tell the wiever, the mountain was in, or by the sea....in this case will it give no sense.

Hi Ms Yvonne,
Just for fun try turning your tiered display stand, around completely.
Stones stay in same places, but change direction of images to face into center of stand.
On your collour stones, pix # 11... Suspect

Ms Yvonne,
When I first saw your stone,
the famous childhood story of Lady Godiva
riding naked into town on horseback came to mind.
What I see is not what you see, and that is fine.
love this stone because it first found you! Embarassed

Hi Ms Yvonne,
This second image stone is also famous image for me as "Waterfall Watcher"
I can hear the roar of the falling water and smell the moisture in the air!
As when I first saw Niagra Falls, comes to mind. Rolling Eyes

Hi Stonener
My first thought was WHAT!.....

Then I had to take a closer look, and this was not a bad idea.....

My impression was the dragon flying to the right. Then the rest of the drawings was placed afterwards.

Your impression gave sense, when found out, to let the dragon fly to the right, but looking back ower the schoulder.
After that, also the stones shape was talking, and not just the drawings.
Many thanks for the opening of my eyes. The display is much better now Very Happy Very Happy

Kind regards Yvonne

Hi Yvonne,


I see the untouched remembrance of the meditating Bodhidharma in a stone touched by time.

I had the flaw on the wood from the last photo removed....Much better now.
The wood was incredible hard and dense to work with, and it polished it self in the making....does anyone know this kind of wood?, it used to belong to a retired carpenter who bought it in hes young days.

Again today, did I have fun with my dremmel....
The 3 mm thick leftower from the previus daisa, have I polished....the meassure is 14 x 22 cm....
It can be of good use for a shohin, or small stone.



A coupple of years ago, I found a nice little endpiece of a branch....it has now become a daisa for the birdstone I found earlier in the summer....I am not really sure if the branch is big enough for ballance, or if it can be called a daisa.
But I a kind of like it.

Hi Yvonne,
That's it, it has also something light, some funny tension.
The way the bird is holding his head, it is like the stone bird is saying:
'I am not crushing the branch i am sitting on'

Hi Yvonne,
The small branch is lovely and as anecdote funny.
Wen you don't feel heavy, you are not heavy....or?
At the same time i would keep my eye open for another a bit bigger one.
Lovely playing around with natures artefact's.

Hi Sunip

Sometimes I dont see the flaws straight away...I just have a feeling. Thank you for helping me on the right track.
The branch is too pretty and smal, for this heavy bird...It works for now, but I will have to find an another bigger, and more rough branch for the bird...probably will it also be better if it is just pale, like the collour nature gave it...or, at least almost Smile.

I post the new photo, when I eventuly have found the next branch.

Kind regards Yvonne

This black stone was lying on the beach last week.
It has now become a danish suiseki, I will be happy to enjoy, for the years to come.
The stone is really dark black, and when it was still weath, it tone was to the slightly deep blue Smile
It stands a little more than 10 cm. tall.
The only cleaning and polish this stone needed, was a rubbing against my jeans, two or tree times during the week.



After I began to find all those stones, and is learning how to carve, by doing. Have I started to look, at the first stones on this topic again....and most of the daisas will be worked all ower in the near future, as I feel, I can do better now.
I am planning to buy two small carving tools, to make it easier to make a nice detailed sharp profile. This will, at least to me, be interesting, and I look forward to the job.

Kind regards Yvonne

In the last few days, have I again felt the need to grab my dremmel...
This time is it a personstone "elder", standing 14,5 cm. tall
I dont know if the daizastyle is chinese, japanese or just danish....but it pretty much turned out the way I wanted it too be.
I hope you like it....or?



For the fun, have I made this little display, as I already had the small stone.
I call the display " Elder and grandson"......Normaly the small stone is a full grown daruma, but in this display, he has become a child Smile I hope for forgivenes.



The red stone is not danish.....In 2006, I was in Takayama in the Japanese Alps, during the winter. The stone will be a "Miya-gawa- ishi", as I went to the river that runs through the town, on a frozen cold winterday. A small black waterliving blackbird, was happy about me...it was waiting 4-5 meter away from me, dawnstream, interested in the insects that would come out of my constant picking up stones. Very nice compagny Very Happy .
When I looked up, I could see, people was thinking " WHAT". But who cares, when they were forgotten as soon as I looked dawn again Smile The daiza is one of my first.



Kind regards Yvonne
