Chrysanthemum Scroll

菊 is the most simple way to say chrysanthemum in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

菊 is specifically the Chrysanthemum Morifolium species. It can also refer to Aster.

In Japanese, this can be a given name, Kikuji or Kiku. Also a given name, Ju, in Chinese.


The yellow flower

Daisy Scroll

雛菊 is how they write "daisy" in Chinese and Japanese.

雛菊 is a good choice if you love daisies, or your name is Daisy. If you translated it directly, this means "chick flower" (as in baby chickens) or "baby chrysanthemum". Of course, when an Asian person reads this, they just think "daisy".

If you're into botany, this title represents "Bellis Perennis".

In Japanese, this can be the female given name, Hinagiku.

All of our calligraphy wall scrolls are handmade.

When the calligrapher finishes creating your artwork, it is taken to my art mounting workshop in Beijing where a wall scroll is made by hand from a combination of silk, rice paper, and wood.
After we create your wall scroll, it takes at least two weeks for air mail delivery from Beijing to you.

Allow a few weeks for delivery. Rush service speeds it up by a week or two for $10!

When you select your calligraphy, you'll be taken to another page where you can choose various custom options.

A professional Chinese Calligrapher

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.

There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.

Trying to learn Chinese calligrapher - a futile effort

Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.

A high-ranked Chinese master calligrapher that I met in Zhongwei

The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
