The Ancient Art of Suiseki Stones

Suiseki is the Japanese art of stones appreciation.

Suiseki art, just like bonsai, was originated in Japan hundreds of years ago, and has refined with time. But you don't need to go to Japan to find a Suiseki stone. You can find stones very similar to the ones in Japan where you live, and convert them in Suiseki, the same way we do with bonsai.

I have been appreciating and collecting these stones for several years now, and the passion is still growing in me. 

We can find them in the form of mountains, human figures, animals, waterfalls, islands, lakes and more. And we find this rocks in beaches, rivers and in rocky terrain. In most cases, we find potential Suiseki stones in places where you can connect with nature, where you can find mental peace, away from the city.

In this course you will learn from start to end, what is the art of Suiseki, how and where to find the correct stones, cleaning them, crafting a custom pedestal, displaying the stone, how to exhibit a Suiseki, how can they go along with bonsai, and much more. And best of all, you will learn all about Suiseki just in one place. 

I just hope that you enjoy what you will learn in this course and that it encourages you to start your own Suiseki collection very soon.
