By Nadja and Sandro Tschudin
Whilst strolling along the Swiss rivers, on Tanseki tours (searching for Suiseki), a bird that Sandro often observes by the clay of the river bank, is the Kingfisher, 'Kawasemi'. .. Or does it observe him?
Kawasemi Studios was born from a passion for suiseki, nature and ceramics, and was created by Swiss couple Nadja and Sandro Tschudin.
Nadja and Sandro are suiseki specialists from the beautiful city of Lucerne, which sits on Lake Lucerne, amid the snow-capped Swiss Alps, an idyllic location for both stone appreciation and tanseki.
Nadja is a ceramist specialising in suiban. Her refined works are of a high quality, with classical designs that complement the subtle nuances of suiban display. Nadja's suiban are used by suiseki collectors around Europe.
Sandro is an experienced and talented daiza carver and has been a bonsai and suiseki enthusiast for over 20 years. Over the decade, he started to carve daiza for customers. With highly refined finishes and excellent unique designs, today Sandro’s Daiza are in the collections of many European and American suiseki collectors. Sandro has carved over 250 daiza over the last twenty years and his work is highly valued within the suiseki community.
'Our aim is to provide everything you need for Suiseki: stones, the wooden bases, suiban, matching scrolls and also education and knowledge. Like this we want to share our love for stones and fine arts as well as raise people's awareness of how to combine elements in displays'.
