When you want to design a daiza for a stone, is it not all the small details of the stone you observe, but the owerall shape of the stone...is it "wild" or quiet, sharp, rounded, or something else.  

Next is it the owerall profile of the stone you observe...incorporate the feel of the shape into the profiledesign you want. A design, that highlight the stone in the best way, without owerwelming it.

Now I come back to the photos you dont think is good enough again...a carwer will look closely to how the stone go into/enter the daiza...the last 5 mm is VERY important when carwing, they are just about  alfa and omega in the design, and my photos show this...with theese Photos can you design a profile, that will fit all of the stone, no matter how you turn it on the table.

Were to place the feet right, in the front of the stone is a minor thing in the first design, it is something I will have to take care of in the carving. Now is more about, how you want the feet to look.

Too late for designideas...could have been funny to have this talk.

Next time you see the stone, has the daiza been sharpened up, and stained dark Brown...it will take a while before you see it, as I want to give the stone a nice stay in the garden...interesting how handling make the stone darker

The stone is still living in the garden every summer in the future, as the one side of the stone become more and more petrol-green, a color that "grow" dawn the sides too...the left side remain Black.

Sorry the photo does not really show the color, must see if I can take a better surfacephoto later

The little Kamo mountainstone from 2013 has its own teak daiza now...
Standing 7.5 cm W x 5.5 H x 3.5 cm D

The stonequality is hard, has a pearskin-ish surface, most visible on the backside...a little more rubbing on the toparea will show off the hardiness of the stone, and add to the stones karakter

Hi, Yvonne Graubaek
I admire you can do daiza well for your stone by yourself.
I have many suiseki but I don't know to make daiza for them, I have to pay to professional to make it for me. I think you will be able to make fine suiseki with exquisite daiza if you have enough stones in the futur.

Thanks for you share your daiza.

Best regards.

Hi Riversoul

Many thanks...I hope to be a good carver one day. Still learning, and sometimes I make a new daiza for a stone I already made a daiza for...I do it if I am not completely happy with the result...maybe I never run out of stones  Very Happy 

Todays work is ower now, and the devil has still ben very much present...hope he will go away tomorrow.

Hi Riversoul

I could wish I had better surroundings for my daizamaking, but you know, money is a issue for most people...I do not complain, but I am standing by a table in a open garage, and is using a dremel with bits, sandingpaper and a regular saw to do the first ouside fitting....for my sawdust protection am I using masks bought in 100 yen shops in Japan.
As you can see, do you not need much to get started  Smile 

Kind regards Yvonne
