I am so happy to be able to announce the completion of the new Suiseki Display, dedicated to the memory of Mas Nakajima, at the Bonsai Garden at Lake Merritt. We’ve been working on this project for the past year, through all the covid-related slow-downs, and we are pleased that it is to the point where we can officially show it off. Our plan is to rotate the display periodically, drawing upon suiseki in the BGLM permanent collection, and also stones on loan from our local Northern California suiseki community.
It is still a work-in-progress, and we still have things we need to do and things we will learn – which is of course all part of the joy. To any suiseki lover coming to Oakland, our Bonsai Garden now has one more reason for you to make sure it’s on your “must-see” list.
