Ibigawa Stone – PG2 [SOLD 7/24/18]
This beautiful, exhibition quality, mountain stone is from the Ibi River in Japan. This stone is sure to be a center piece of any stone collection. It provides grand and imaginative scenery with its peaks and valleys from ever angle. It is truly a evocative piece of natural art with the typical Japanese style sand blasted bottom and some grinder marks on the back bottom edge and the right edge. The marks in no way affect the over all appearance of this awesome stone. Stone measures 29 cm wide, 10 cm high and 20 cm deep. $395.
Tobetsugawa Stone (Hokkaido) – PG3 [SOLD]
This unusual stone from the Tobetsu River which is on the northwestern side of the Japanese Island of Hokkaido is sure to be appreciated by the true stone connoisseur. This stone with a deep cavern in the center was aptly named “Dragon Lives on the Edge.” This stone was a part of the esteemed Suiseki Association of Hokkaido Exhibtion two years ago. The softwood daiza fits the stone perfectly and is obviously crafted by an expert daiza maker (Unsure of the craftsman’s name). Stone measures 12 cm wide , 13 cm high and 10 cm deep. $295.
Harry Hirao Stone – PG4
This little mountain stone came from the Harry Hirao Collection. Uncertain as to which Southern California river Harry collected the stone from, although it resembles materials taken from the Eel River. Its natural base fits nicely in the rosewood daiza and is 7 cm wide, 5.5 cm high and 5.5 cm deep. $115.
Ligurian Alps Stone –PG5 This charming little, palm sized stone has three distinctive peaks and a natural bottom. Collected by the late Nelda Rodriquez, outstanding suiseki artist from Puerto Rico. Nelda’s initials are on the bottom of the daiza. Works as a complimentary stone for bonsai or as a stand alone viewing stone. Size 16 cm wide, 11 cm high and 8 cm deep. $295.
SE-1 Flower Stone – Japan – 17x9x16cm – $400; the front of the stone has been lacquered and the back has not.
SE-2 Japanese Carved Hut Stone, 8x6x9.5cm – $450; this stone has been highly carved and is not a natural stone; however, it is a lovely form and could be easily used in a bonsai or kusamono display.
SE-3 Japanese Waterfall Stone, Red Lava – Previously Owner is Chuji Sugii and Koji Suzuki – 11x4x5.5cm – $700; The daiza was crafted by Koji Suzuki and previously owned by Chuji Sugii as prolific collector from Kyoto, Japan. This stone doesn’t have Sugii’s normal sticker but I can confirm in was in his collection as I purchased the stone directly from Koji-san.
[SOLD] SE-4 Setagawa – Doha – 13×11.5×5 cm – $300 (small crack in daiza); a very fine patina on this stone with a well made daiza sans the crack.
[SOLD] SE-5 A Ligurian mountain range. No daiza but can be used in a suiban or doban. 12.5 x 5 x 5 cm. $250; do not place this stone in water at any time as water impacts the surface texture. It is very difficult to photograph this stone to show the fine surface textures. Ligurian stones from Italy are highly similar to Furuya stones from Japan.
[SOLD] SE-6 Kamogawa – 15x4x3cm – $175; I assume this is a worked stone so be conscious of that if your aesthetic doesn’t allow for those.
SE-7 Doha, 13×2.5×3 cm – nice rosewood daiza – $85
[SOLD] SE-8 Kamagawa Hut Stone – 11x7x7.5cm – $200; a natural stone, surprising since most hut stones have been heavily worked.

SE-10 Seigaku – 16×6.5×6.5 – Some see a human on the left side – Excellent daiza – $450; not an inexpensive stone for its size but it is an excellent small stone with a beautifully made daiza.
SE-11 Seigaku – 15x6x6cm – $200; a quieter stone than above. It almost looks like a Furuya stone.
SE-12 Sagigawa – Can be used as a brush rest – 14x5x4cm – $300; a nice literati stone if used as a brush rest or from a Japanese perspective a good mountain stone. A very rough texture with good movement.

SE-16 Black Butte Mountain Stone – 12x6x4.5cm – $160; the patina is beginning to develop nicely on this newer stone. It has a cut bottom, thus having a daiza built for it will be simple. Lovely jasper colors in reds, yellows, white and black.
SE-17 Eel River Mountain Stone – 13×6.5×5.5cm – $150; reminds me of the Bay Area after heavy rains when a portion of the mountain slides. A cut stone.
SE-18 Mountain Stone with Cave – Cave is all the way through the stone – 13×5.5×4.5 – $50
SE-19 Ligurian – 6x4x5cm – Nice for a doban or small daiza – $50; we enjoy these tall peak stones – they are quite small but are fun to display in a small suiban.
SE-20 Ligurian – 4.5×2.5x5cm – Nice for a doban or small daiza – $50
SE-21 Norther CA Red Jasper – 13x7x14 – $200; note the figure on elephant or horseback in the bottom left and notice how the rider’s head is thrown back and connected to the cloud above. There is also a figure like element to the right/bottom of the stone. On the back side is another figure (below) that stands out quite well. Some don’t appreciate these kinds of stones but we enjoy both the color and how the imagination can be used to visualize its textures.
