Japanese Viewing Stones


Bill Webster, Columbus, OH
Japanese Viewing Stones

About 35 years I began doing suiseki (Japanese viewing stones). Since that time, I have gone through several permutations which have resulted in bringing this old tradition into the 20th-21st century and having a distinctive American flavor. If you would like to see some samples of earlier work, see my web-site. Sorry that I have not kept the site up to date. My hometown is Iowa City and I spent my adult life in Philadelphia. Five years ago I reconnected with a woman that I dated at the U. of Iowa in the mid-50s; we had not seen each other nor spoken in 52 years. She lives in Davenport; while I am in Columbus OH, I get back to IA every couple months. I truly wish that I were there more because your club is far better than is the one in Columbus.
