First of all, please clean your seal stones. A little warm water, some soap and an old toothbrush will get rid of the old gunk which is clogging up the carving.

On the lower stone, it appears that the remnants of an old paper label have stuck on. Same treatment for removal.

Once they have been cleaned and dried, you should be able to make a reasonable impression.

The first seal reads: 簡園詩稾 which means something like a 'draft poem of the Jian garden'.

The second seal reads: 小籧廬 the cottage of the small coarse woven mat. A self deprecating studio-name. | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
