Hello Yvonne.
Beautiful color and skin on that first black stone.
I am convinced you will find many interesting stones on the beaches in Denmark.


Lovely how you made the daiza, normally i would not opt for this but here it adds lovely to the stone,
it is like the standing figure is placing a foot forwards and on the backside it shows as the robe, it makes the figure more lively.

(quote)
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.

[/quote]
If you forgive yourself.
Interesting how a stone in another context becomes something different, so juvenile.
Daruma asked by a pointing figure; who are you?
The question is; is the figure that big or is Daruma shrinked by that question?
On the other hand; if he shrinked by that question, it woud not be Daruma.

I previus posted a photo of this bird in a daiza not good enough, too pretty and too small....
I have found this dry piece of wood, the stone does ballance nice on it, and I did not have to carve anything.
I like it better...hope you like it Smile



A friend who knows much more about daizacarving, and good taste, advised me to alter the daisa of this stylish stone....It was one of the first daiza I carved, after a long brake, and is also shown on this tread.

It looks like this now....the lines in the daiza follows the stone much better...it was a good advise...thank you JQ, I learned a lot, that day....Hope you like it Smile



Kind regards yvonne

Hello Yvonne,
I like it, it is much better now.
How would it be with such a nice piece of wood with more mass under the diameter of the stone,
when there is some wood piece touching the floor underneath the center of the stone it is even more in balance i feel?
This is of course judging from the picture, for now, i love it, the open spaces under the stone gives the whole a nice lightness.

Hi Sunip

I am happy you like the new daiza better....yes, this is only a photo, and I can see/understand why you think it appears a little short. In the real, is is not short like the picture Smile The stone look ballanced all the way arround.
If I manage to take better photos, will I post.

Kind regards Yvonne

Hello Yvonne,
From the picture it is difficult to read but it has a
nice rhythmical flow, looks like a crawling dragon or salamander.
The freezing weather did not stop you from stone searching?

Hi Sunip

I like the pictures you see in stones...crawling dragon or salamander, is nice inspiration. And tells me, the stone is nice.
I picked it up because of the owerall oval shape, and the rhythmical flow you mention. To me is it a costalstone, with awesome collour and patina.
On this forum can you find people who can place the stone exact in the right categori. I am not that skilled, as I learn about categoris, by looking at photos of stones...most of the books are in japanese, and I dont read japanese.

Yes, it is frezing here at the moment....the stone was not in the water, and the car 2 minits away, it took about 4 minutes to pick up this, and a second stone.

Theese flints has been in the sand, or on the beach, with rapid sweetwater flowing ower them, and into the sea. Resently, has there been some digging with big machines, and now theese stone is free of sand, and is lying there for the picking up. As soon as the frost is gone, will I go back again.
When I turn theese flintstones, is it easy to see, they have been placed the same way for years, and years, as they have a backside with no glossy patina. Lovely.

Kind regards Yvonne

Soon after I went for theese 3 Flintstones. They all have a nice sice.

I can see more stone have surfaced, but they are solid frozen to the ground, so it must wait.
Hopefully can I rescue them, before children throw them in the ocean, or riders with their horses and iron horseshoes enjoy a trip on the beach.




This objectstone is my fauvorite...a massive stone, with a awesome patina.





This shelterstone looks like a birdhead.



This coastalstone with a waterpool does hardly have any glossy parts, nice for a chance.



This mountainstone was found as the first a coupple of months ago. But not shown on this topic.

This flint, like all the others have undergone a rough cleaning with a hard brush. As I dont want to consider flint worthy to be suiseki, if they brake easy.
They all stood the test....they need to be trown against something stonehard to brake Smile

Kind regards Yvonne

Hello Yvonne.
Yes, not a time to collect stones or to work in the garden,
but to look at ones stone collection is fine now.
This stone reminds me of a winterbird.
lovely color.

Amazing playful waterstone

This one is not clear to me yet, maybe a waterpool or cave stone?

Denmark is a treasure island for finding nice flint stones!

Ha ha Sunip
You remember the holestone Smile...

The massive first stone, can be shown in any way, it is very ballanced, and is pretty, and interesting all ower. This is just the front I decided to show/look at for the moment. You are right, it looks like a bird.

I hope to find a handfull unharmet flints more, as they represent Denmark so well...
You see, when stonelovers get together at suisekiexhibits, they often bring stones to give away, and stones to exchange, this is a very nice way to make people happy, and to make friends.

Kind regards Yvonne

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.

I display the stone in my home



Here the stone is dry, but after learning so much about suiseki lately, and the way to display. Do I not think it is enough for me anymore, just to weath the stone for an exhibition. Now I like to do it for my own sake.



Here is the stone all newly watered, I dont really like this too glossy vision. And it is not the right time to take the picture.



Here the stone is partly dried up, and the collours show better. Because of all the water in the suiban, will this vision stay for many days, as the stone somehow transport the water up the sides, in some places.

I hope you like the stone.

Kind regards Yvonne

Hi Hung

Overrate is the same as " ower the top", and I am not sure what you mean....

So I want to explain...This display is for my home only.

The suiban is too small, and would be better if it was more pointed in oval shape. The collour is nice.

I like the ship has same collours as the stone, and I am sometimes playfull. The ship would not be used in a exhibition.

A bigger suiban, and no ship would be much less ower the top.

I know black stones is more stylish, but a stone with collours is nice inbetween.

Hope it helps Smile

Kind regards Yvonne.
