The 7th. stone i found in the Kamoriver on my trip to Japan, is now in a daiza.
Standing 16 cm wide 8.5 Deep, and 6 cm high....

Yes I think that is better.....see how you excel in this, Yvonne, you are really getting better and better at it.  

I've tried this, carving a daiza,  I will show it  on here one day, but mine is hilariously funny.

Can you show us a picture of your carving tools, that you use.    I just bought a Terrier, and now I realize that I need the Tool that the terrier fits into....Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes 
......this just carries on doesn't it!    ( The dremmel is too small ,  the grinder is too big, and the drill...well thats just it the drill wants to drill...What a Face 

I also like your previous daiza...but hell I would never dare to criticize you, Ms Yvonne ( like stonener calls you)

Love and light

Hi Andre

I am happy you like my daizas....I can ofcourse be criticised. I have some daizas I am planning to redo, or make  new, from the beginning.
I have soon run out of stones i found, and dont really find new.....I will find a lot of time to do this job.

This is my simple tools....the dremmel is too heavy for me, so i use the smallest proxxon....several sorts of sandpaper...and two kinds of sandpaperrools for the machine...two carvingbits, and a knife that broke the tip the other day...(must buy a new), and then a saw...not much, but it Works for me.

Look forward to see your daizas Smile 

Kind regards Yvonne

Gee wizz Yvonne, now I'm even more impressed......tools out of the stone age....

I thought you had all the new tools on the market, like those 3D printers you get these days.  Can you imagine drawing a Daiza and have it printed in wood.....albino

I borrowed an amazing set of Carving tools from a friend of mine, too see if I need them in my life... Well I almost took my arm of.   I bled for hours  pale 

So I'll stick with the electic tools..

..and too think, that  only a few years ago, the strongest power tool that I  handled, was an electric breadknife!

Anyway, very impressive.

Love and light

Hi Andre

I friend bought me a dremmel many years ago, he thought I was patetic in my fear of tools...it took 2 years before I tried it out Embarassed 
When I finaly started up with daizas, did I try to get away with it, by making feltdaizas, "it was more my thing"

I use the knife more and more...

So go ahead...look forward to your daiza

Kind regards Yvonne

7th. stone from my 2013 trip to Kyoto, is in the daiza now...it was tough beginning on this daiza...the Kamogawaishi is far from perfect...too triangle, and too topheavy...the good thing about the stone, is all corners is nicely rounded, and old surface all ower....had to do something special for the stone, with the daiza....standing 14.5 cm wide, 11 Deep, and 6.5 high.....now is it time to build up a nice patina...

After looking at the daiza for some days, did I find the stone was not Sharp enough on the edges for the sharpnes of the daiza...so I have softened  the rims, and also was it possible/better to have a more horizontal line on the side.

Also was it possible to take out a Little more Wood from the high rim

The Setagawa stone from page 1,  have a new daiza now....I had not learned to "read" the wood back then, when I made the first, and did not see a hidden old crack in the Wood.
The stone deserved a good daiza, and also did I want to loose a couple of feet, and place the stone a Little deeper....this is the result


Kind regards Yvonne

It almost looks as if the wood is bending and giving away to the will of the stone..... it looks malleable!

Stunning!

Hi Andre

Many thanks....I think it is how my style is, a malleable look....at the same time is it important to have some firmnes to the daiza...I would not want it to look like the stone will drop out of the daiza. Or the stone have a need for braces, to hold up the daiza.....I want my stones to be and look supported Smile

Just finished this daiza, Wood is meranti

I found the stone some years ago in Spain. It is not a japanese styled showstopper, but can be a very nice little western styled  mountainstone, standing beside a European bonsai.

Standing 14 cm tall  9 wide, and 6 cm Deep

I love the tiny wild texture, in the right sice for the mountain

Kind regards Yvonne

with all those little movements/ledges I can picture the stone as adjacent to the ocean and used by birds to nest and perch.
Really nice to have in your collection, stones from around your travels. thanks for sharing....Smile

Hi Dick

Many thanks for your reply...the stone could be seen in the ocean like you did, not a bad suggestion at all...I saw a huge mountain, like Matterhorn, a European mountain. Witch is difrent from the japanese Mountains. The mountains in Japan is mostly big soft hils, and vulcanos.

Hi Yvonne... A daiza carver as well as a viewer of the stone would be interested in looking at it above the top of the stone, so that its contour is more obvious.  Your mid-February collecting photos assist in this regard...
