Hi Andre

I am happy you like my gallery...stones and daizas.
The daiza for the turtledove, is one of the few i did not make...sorry...I would have liked to make it....maybe I should try to find some more fine tools, to refine my tiny daizas more...( more sexy) Smile

Kind regards yvonne

The second stone from my Japantrip in feb. this year....

Kamogawaishi, standing 14.5 cm w- 9 deep, and 5 cm high.
The stone has a old eroded surface, and the handling when carving the daiza, gave it a nice patina...it will not go in the garden again.

I hope you like it...Sorry Sunip...the stone we spoke about, will have a new daiza on a later occasion, as I was not inspired to take it now after all.

Hi Trantanhung

None of the Kamostones I found in february is showstoppers, but they all have qualities as suiseki, to the more quiet side....all of the stones I end up giving a daiza, has more elements liked in suiseki.
I am sure all the more spetaculare stones is being picked up regulary, by japanese collectors, as soon as they can be reached.
The small stones, I have brought home, is stones I will remember for ever, for a very nice trip to Kyoto, and they will stay close to my hart.
The best stones I found this year, and last year, was found in small places, not on big search places.

This year, and last, was I lucky to find many difrent kinds of stonequalities, representing Kamogawaishis, this I am very pleased about.

I will give you, the stone just shown has a boring flat front on the photo...but you can see on the other photos something pretty is going on, and having the stone in my hand, is the front also very nice...I see it is a good Kamogawaishi.

Kind regards Yvonne

Hello Yvonne
Thank you for showing your Kamagowa finds from this year.
Amazing they are already on daiza!
It is like Hung Tran already expressed, i like them as humble landscape images.
The last one has an interesting front and color.

Hi Sunip

Yes, the stone has a very nice collor, best shown on the first photo...It is a very old, and very hard, once broken stone...I am happy it happened long ago, the sharp corners, are nicely rounded, may not be really visible on the photo.
despite the steps, does it not have any brakinglines(cracks), this is one of the very nice things about this kind of japanese stones...the very thin layers ( many in every layer) was so hard pressed together millions of years ago, it can brake without leaving any lines behind.
It is one of my favourite stones from the trip...though quiet, does it still have a little action to it.
Also is the shape very nice for a landskaesuiseki...the front is falling in steps for this kind of stone, towards the viewer, nothing is turned to the backside...and seen from above, does it have the oblong shape, and is wider in the one side...the stone is bend towards to viewer...I am very pleased, and would like to jump from step to step in this lovely little landskape.

Kind regards Yvonne

[quote="Yvonne Graubaek"]4th. little Kamogawaishi 2013 in the daiza...

Hello Yvonne,
The solution for a daiza shape works very well.
In some way the daiza solution reminds me a bit of a stone in the
Shunkaen suiseki collection on the site of Petere Warren.
Your stone has a gesture which is reaching out in an interesting way, building up in tree steps.
From the backside it reminds me of an animal stretching the neck outwards

Hi Sunip

The backside of my suiseki is a kind of tigerstriped...looks nice...A person said to me, it looks like a frog starting a jump...
The front could be a frog too, if you only look at the photo...having it in the hand, does it only say landskapestone/stepstone to me.
It does look a little like the stone of Peter Warren, and the daiza could have been my work....I have a green stone from the same trip..it looks maybe even more like the stone you hav shown.

Kind regards Yvonne
