Here is an Arizona Cypress that has occupied my time recently... along with alot of other things. I have this thing sitting around for a very long time, one of my trees that somehow managed to survive the earlier days of my Bonsai inexperience when most did not. This winter, it caught my eye and I decided that since our winter was very, mild, I would do something with it... The pot some might have seen posted before, I had Chuck Iker make it for me. Seeing that the tree kinda reminded me of something one might find in the high deserts of New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, etc... A place that I spent alot of time at in earlier days, I decided I wanted a pot that resembled those made by the Hopi or Navajo Indians... So I gave him the dimensions, he made it, fired it with an Oxide glaze, and I painted the motifs. Quite a few pics coming... give me a minute before posting so I can get them all up.
