Island Stone

Post  Tom Simonyi on Fri Dec 09, 2011 8:52 pm

I have posted this composition before but am still tweaking it....I changed the angle of the suiban completely because I wanted to create the impression of a person(s) approaching the beach. The material below the water line was fashioned from a mixture of clear epoxy and sand. It has taken me quite some time to get to this point, but I am pleased with the composition. I welcome input as always.

Regards,
Tom

Hi Tom

It is is pretty little naturescene, with a little ying and yang ower it, and if you are happy about it, can I understand.
But it has for many reasons nothing to do with exhibit of suiseki. I think you know Smile

Kind regards Yvonne

Yes, Yvonne....and thank you, I fully understand what you are saying....regarding suiseki I realize this composition is way outside the box to be considered as such...my passion for creating it was driven by my love for the peaceful nature of beach settings. If others share a love for such settings they may enjoy it...that is why I shared it.

Best regards,
Tom

A somewhat more pleasing angle I think.

I like things that are a little different, especially if they are shared with other tradional methods of display. I say that while shuddering when i think of stones on cushions. I don't know why but that offends me. a friend of mine
brought a little creativity to his frog stone by making the daiza look more like a lilly pad.( t op left in the pic) Different, it was displayed at our show
in conjunction with Bon Odori at the White River Buddist temple, this frog was a big crowd pleaser.

Hi Dick

Do you have better photos?, I would be happy to have a closer look at them all

The frogdisplay is diffrent from the other stones...but it is still traditionel.....traditionel is many things Smile
maybe you never saw a very good stone on a very nice cussion....This is really old tradition, as far as I know is it originated in China.

Kind regards Yvonne

Thanks for the info on the cushions...thought it was more of a modern day development. So now maybe i can be more tolerant ( but I still don't like the looks Smile )
