The art originated in China where stones were admired for their natural beauty. They were used in miniature landscapes and depicted in scrolls. Stones then made their way to Japan where it was refined into an art form. This art form featured stones with uncut natural beauty and shapes were admired for generations. The stones were placed at just the right angle in their container or stand that enhanced the all-important viewing.

Learn: Rules & Techniques, attend shows, Trips to collect stones of your own.

Meetings are on the 2nd Tuesday each month starting Sept 11th @7:00pm
