Pacific Rim Bonsai Collection

Bonsai Artist: Mr. SuHyung Yoo
Species: Korean Yew (Taxus cuspidata)

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.

What a beautiful tree. If the lower right branch were raised just enough to show off the deadwood better, I would say it was perfect.
 
I find the rootage, which in this view at least appears to form a legged pedastal above the surface of the soil, to be visually disturbing; it weakens what is otherwise a spectacular composition.
