Had this idea for a Suiseki with a cloud and came up with this rock from a
yard sale and a piece of Paduak and a piece of Walnut I shaped with
files and a Shinto rasp.

Sealed with a couple coats of Shellac and the project is finished.

It was a fun project and I’ll build another one from another rock from
the same yard sale.

She (and I) really like this piece you did.

I love that you go one step further…I’m the same way. Some of the suieki people online absolutely berate those that post anything other than the absolutely traditional. I keep remonding them that all traditions were radically new ideas once upon a time even if it was hundreds of years ago. Good job!

Now that is thinking “Outside of the rock”.
