First thoughts, Art ... I would go with:

-- An unglazed pot, darker than what it's in now.
-- Round, or oval; that would echo the movement at the base, which is one of the tree's good features.
-- Something of solid construction, even heavy. This tree portrays mass and strength, and the pot should reflect that. A drum pot might be good.
-- Depth about what you have now, for visual mass.

There's my input. Free and worth every penny you paid! :D
