Suiseki: The Art of Stone Appreciation

Stones have been admired and collected for thousands of years. And throughout history, cultures around the globe have developed unique names, disciplines and guidelines for their particular art form. In Japan the art is called "Suiseki," in China "Scholar's Rocks", in Korea it is "Suseok" or "Gongshi." Terms used might include: Viewing stones, artistic stones, object stones and others. Suiseki are small, naturally formed stones admired for their beauty and for their power to suggest a scene from nature or an object closely associated with nature. Types of suiseki might suggest a distant mountain, a waterfall, a distant landscape, or an animal.

Visit the East Los Angeles Library and join expert collectors Phil Chang and Janet Shimizu, members of the California Aiseki Kai association, as they display and discuss striking examples of this delicate and traditional art form.
