WHAT IS SUISEKI?
"Even stones have a love, a love that seeks the ground." - Meister Eckhart
The Japanese word, suiseki, is defined as a single stone that has the power to suggest something in nature far greater than itself. (Matsuura, 2010).
“Suiseki, or viewing stone, is often used as the complimentary object for bonsai. Occasionally, a bonsai is used as the secondary object for a suiseki." -John Naka

The hobby of collecting viewing stones brings forth engaging activities ranging from engaging in educational lectures about the art or even the science behind it, to the task of stone hunting itself
