I love the stone Sunip.
Crete is a very diverse landscape, did this come from the high mountain area?

Hello Chris,
The Ida mountains are beautiful indeed but this stone is from the south cost area.
I am eagerly waiting how your hawthorn will leave out, the one i got from you at the Noelanders.

As I look at your stone, I too like the horizontal look to it.

One part of me ( the unconventional part) as i look at the first picture, wants to see a daiza built that just support the flat center part and allow the ends to turn up into space.

Th more conventional me says, no cover the entire bottom with the daiza and adjust up with wood to rise with the corners.

I picture that stone in my mind's eye as something along a sea shore. I could see it in a suiban filled with water
and maybe a small Seal figurine on one end.

Hello Dick,
I see the stone lying horizontal like a shore stone,
i made a picture from above to show the deep natural gorges.
I was thinking of a daiza with the sides filled up and at the same time it looks good on a rectangle black jitta
like Chris Cochrane mentioned where he was writing of a (new) Japanese Zen approach published in the
California Aiseki Kai issue, oct 2009.

Hello,
Here the stone on a seat, i am not completely satisfied yet, maybe i change some things.
Specially the backside on the third picture, is a bit heavy this way.

Hello Peter.
Thank you for your vision.
A lower and more subtile foot underlines the horizontal character of the stone and gives more space to the horizontal lines.

my humble opinion

Post  stonener on Thu May 10, 2012 8:14 am

Hey Sunip maybe you could consider lazy legs, next time?
I think when feet are tucked, undercut and not so provokingly visible,
a more stable feeling and grounding effect occurs.
Massiveness of landscape view is unobstructed and so better appreciated,
even if the daiza is thicker which signals natural uncut bottom, best possible.
offered as expert on nothing... Basketball



there are feet at both ends, just hard to see at this angle... Suspect

Hello Stonener.
Thanks, i red your thoughts on lazy feet in the other post and thought -it depends, it might work with certain stones-
( i remember the answer of Yvonne as well -just lazy feet-),
let me try to share some others thoughts on this now to get possibly some further nuance.
A daiza isolates and connects the stone from and to the environment in a certain designed way, so we can appreciate the stone.
I used this specific shape for the feet here, because for me they give the horizontal lines in the stone more space to flow.
Your preferred shape would stop that movement to much i feel (in another way provokingly visible),
they produce together with a straight wall of the seat, vertical lines that would cut into the stone.
The mass of the wood, the thickness, is important here for connection to the ground and does the trick together with a subtile outward flowing of the feet and a light convex wall of the seat (not concave),
the placement of the feet is important as well.
Naturally because of personal appreciation, different aspects in a stone will get emphasize on times i gather.
The idea of Peter to lower the feet a bit, confirms my feeling that the whole is floating to much
and make therefore the feet provokingly visible.
See where it goes.
