Dr. Vincent Covello is the co-author of what many consider the bible on rocks in small Japanese style gardens, The Japanese Art of Stone Appreciation, published by Tuttle Publishing. Dr. Covello will explore the art of suiseki—small, naturally formed stones selected for their shape, balance, simplicity and tranquility—and how to apply this art form to non-Japanese gardens. He will offer aesthetic guidance and direct practical advice on rock selection, placement, and appreciation. He will also describe how he has used information about stone appreciation in creating his own 20-acre garden in East Hampton, New York.
