    Nick Lenz Pot - Early Work

    I was really sad to hear of Nick's passing a few days ago. He was a huge corner stone in the bonsai community and ironically his works were some the first that introduced me into bonsai. His artistry was just top notch and his work always made me think in ways other bonsai haven't. His pottery...

    Pots by Nao Tokutake: photo thread (in use!)

    Like other photo thread rules: don’t make a post in here unless it has a photo! Except, it has to be a pot you own, by Nao Tokutake, and it has to be in use. I’d love to see what y’all have! I’ll start: This is a Red Huckleberry in a modest lil pot by Nao. I think I bought it from him in late...

    “The Oregon Hole”

    This technique isn’t novel and I don’t know where it originated, but I’ve had a chuckle over the name “The Oregon Hole.” It’s stormy this week so I’ve been hiding under my carport and listening to podcasts and music while monitoring the drill. Here’s what I wrote up to explain the process to...

    Some questions regarding quality and unconventional shapes

    Hi all, I've been practicing making planters in my little pottery studio and I'm a little bit obsessed with forms that almost look like they could be naturally formed. Here is some examples of what I've made: I wanted to ask all you bonsai professionals, what determines quality for you in...

    Drilling Extra Drainage Holes in Pot

    I just received this awesome Thor Holvila bonsai pot in the mail, but it only has one tiny drainage hole. I don’t have pictures yet, but you can see the hole in the second to last picture here: http://thorholvila.tictail.com/product/palm-size-1708-13-xxx. It would offer barely any drainage and I...

    Some new stuff

    Been a while since I posted, thought I'd post some new pots that came out of the kiln recently. Contrary to what some would have people believe, the construction quality, thickness of walls (which isn't really an issue for me, I slab build everything and my slab roller is pretty precise ) and...

    Round vs Oval

    (Squares/Rectangles will be excluded for simplicity) When I first became interested in bonsai, I looked at a lot of photos. Because of the angle of the photos and my newbiness, I originally assumed the pots were round. I now know that most of the pots I saw were ovals. I would think that with...

    A Little Pot Shopping

    I recently had the opportunity to rummage through a whole bunch of inexpensive Chinese imports and stock up on pots at a very reasonable price. I think I may have gotten a little carried away ;) This is what ended up in the back of my car: Actually, I really do need a bunch of inexpensive...

    My stand at 2009 'Joy of Bonsai' show

    Here is my display from KAWA'S J.O.B. taken this January. Quite a few pots and trees fit into such a small space! It was a great mini-convention up in Bunnell, Florida.
