Pacific Rim Bonsai Collection

Bonsai Artist: Mr. Mas Moriguchi
Species: San Jose Juniper (Juniperus chinensis 'San Jose')

Traditions and Transitions - Arts of the Earth

This unique display combining the art of pottery, with the art of bonsai, was put on by the Weyerhaeuser Company. The curator for the Pacific Rim Bonsai Collection is Mr. David DeGroot. Some of the collection's most popular trees were used in this exhibit. Not the least of which are Mr. Nick Lenz's American Eastern Larch, Mr. John Naka's Oriental Sweet Gum, and Mr. Vaughn Banting's Bald Cypress.

This exhibit was on display at the PRBC August 17 - September 27, 2006.

I don't think this display works as well as some of the others in this series. The pottery is overlapping the tree stand, and I believe the tree would work better with fewer low branches.
 
I love lower branches.. also help with taper 20 yrs from now.. a few more years on refining the clouds and it's a ten..
