Well it is that time of year again – Kokufu 2013.  We didn’t get the opportunity to make it this year but we did obtain just a few photos from the Green Club.  Unfortunately no trees but several pictures of the suiseki for sale.

Green Club 2013 – A beautiful Harada Houn Doban

A Harada Hound doban. His real name is Harada Kenkichi and he was born in 1898 and died in 1973.  His dobans are made by the lost-wax metal-casting method and his skills are greatly appreciated.  This was priced pretty well at 330,000 Yen or at yesterday’s exchange rate $3530.

The last photo are some of the stones being sold by Mr. Suzuki who has made many of our daizas for our stones.  An excellent craftsman.
