SUISEKI - Item # 1307
KAMOGAWA - ISHI


Origin: Kamogawa-ishi. Kyoto prefecture, Japan.
Size: 16 x 9.5 x 6 cm (w x h x d)
Daiza: Carved in Japan from softwood and stained a dark red brown colour - its design suits the stone well.
Comments: A nice quality hut stone, with both sides having their merits and either could be seen as the front, this allows flexibility in directional movement if used to display with a bonsai.
As with many hut stones this one has had some work around the bottom of the roof to create the shape - in Japan worked hut stones are enjoyed for their 'wabi' qualities, rather than their naturalness.

This poem by Fujiware no Teika (1162-1241) captures well the feeling of wabi and a rustic hut.
As I look around
cherry blossom or crimson leaves
are not to be found -
by the rush-thatched hut along the shore
in autumn's evening dusk.
Price: 190 (GBP), including worldwide air shipment.
