Calligraphy done here???


Our Japanese master calligrapher is in the USA at the moment, so we can get a release signed from her with ease if needed.


-Gary.
Is she doing any calligraphy while here? If so, would it cut down on "production time" if something is ordered now?

Hi Gary - what calligraphy style should I choose? I want it like the Aikido I got, so to speak.

Oh, sorry, I meant the first two, which were shorter, around 60' - anyway, I see how I can order it properly for the medium size, which is what I want in the width. Thanks. Everything I've gotten from you has been fantastic.

Custom Length?

Hi Gary - I'm considering ordering a scroll of "Spring Summer Fall Winter" and the estimated length in med. size comes up as around 60" - is there a way to get it to around/at least 70"? If so, what would it cost extra? I'm wondering about it because with the Aikido scrolls I've gotten from you, the...

Thanks Gary. After I get the samples I'll work on the callig. I know there are different ways to approach this particular one....

If you have the frost blue that would be great, but mainly copper brocade and the orange choc.

Thanks Gary, much appreciated. Then I'll ask you how to do "Infinte Aiki" = mugen aiki?

Got the Enso, here's a pic

Hi Gary - the Enso looks great, the silk combination worked really well. It's true, you can't really see the Ivory inserts, so there's probably something better for that, but that doesn't matter, it's beautiful. Here's a pic, since it came directly to me....

Hi Gary - it's confusing, for instance if you take the character for "tao" and select Michiko Imai to do the calligraphy - select Kaisho and the character looks like what I want in the general examples of her work, but not in the example of the actual charater that comes up on the right/top of the p...

Panel/Brocade Question....

Hi Gary - do you ever use brocade instead of the "gold sub-panels" above and below the calligraphy? Are there any options?

Thanks,

Meaning?

Hi Gary - do you know what this would translate as and how it would be pronounced (I know the last three characters well....?) It's what I use on my dojo seals, and I'm thinking of getting a scroll of it or using it as an inscription on another calligraphy scroll I'm thinking about ordering.... 銳意守合...

Enso Scroll....

Hi Gary - is it possible to get an "Enso" scroll just a little wider than the standard medium size, say, 24" at the ends of the wooden knobs? If it is possible, can you let me know approx. how much it would cost? The only "extras" I'd want would be an inner silk frame, and 2 accent lines above but n...

Two Questions....

Hi Gary - I have two questions for you. First, I'm contemplating getting an "Enso" scroll, but I'm wondering if I can get a custom size, and if so, how much it might cost. I'm thinking of a vertical scroll, but somewhere in the neighborhood of 24" long, and 36" wide. Often, Enso scrolls are wider th...

Gary - I got the Ki/Chi calligraphy piece yesterday - sooner than expected, thanks - and I have to say, it is very, very nice. Really well done, really well mounted. It will eventually go in my Aikido dojo, but for now, it's going to hang on my wall at home. I'll be ordering more for my home and the...

Thanks.
