Suiseki from Israel.

Post  Leonid on Tue Jun 16, 2009 11:46 am

Hi!
I am suiseki lover from Israel. The most of my stones- have been found in Negev Desert, so can be classified as “sabaku- ishi”. I am glad to represent some part of my collection.

Hi Leonid... Nice to meet a stone friend who collects in Israel. Can you share a photo of your collecting area? Do you share interest locally in a stone or bonsai group?

Perhaps, you are a reader of the California Aiseki Kai newsletter www.aisekikai.com, which promotes desert stone collecting. The newsletter is very good & distributed online. Older issues are archived.

Hi, Chris Cochrane
I am very grateful to you for kind words! Especially I wish to thank for a link on California Aiseki Kai. It simply find in conditions of the information deficite! Necessarily I shall the constant reader. I have very few photo of collection areas from Negev but that I have that is I shall show All these prisms, - a natural origin (Mahtesch a-Katan (or Cmall Crater)) the Stone on my avatar is found in this place.
and ,- Two photos from mountain part of the Central Negev.
Next week I shall try to photograph dry vadies (and, I hope Deserted Roses in their habitat.)

Hi Leonid... Thanks for additional sharing. One view suggests a boulder-strewn & steep-cliff sided valley opening to a boulder strewn vista. It is spectacular in its astringency. Is it as remote as it appears? Like the caves entrances Deng reinforces as special in Chinese scholar rock appreciation, your landscape begs to imagine more—past & future time as well as entry to a wide, uncommon world.

I am very glad, that to you have liked Negev!
I would like to represent the few pictures from Negev Hills.


It is typical hills loess and clay desert, but almost in all places surface of soil is “decorated “ by stones.

These stones often get the specific shapes (Desert Rose) because of influence of dew.

Usually they are relatively soft stones, but sometimes this shape may be found also in hard kinds of stones.

Rivers flow only in winter, but in summer we can see only dry canals, often they are covered by desert plants.



It is the typical desert “citizen”…

How come we haven't met there?

Hi Leonid,

Traveling in the same areas myself every now and then, I wonder how come we meet in the net sites and not on the real world? Loved you Suiseki.
Have you managed to find a stone that fits as a pot? Since I like my stones with some greenish company [=Bonsai trees :-)] I have found myself, during a weekend hiking in the Negev high mountain, walking for about 6-7 kilometers with an 1.5 Kg [~ 3.3 Pound] hollow rock that I thought will fit as a potting place for one of my trees.
