That is going to be one heck of a report. Did the juniper fit?
That tree is currently getting grafted with shimpaku and won’t need to be repotted for at least another year or two. I’m sure The roots will fit but the tree is currently undergoing a total rebuild so who knows whether the future styling in the pot will jibe.

My friend Ron Heinen made it. He’s a retired art & ceramics teacher, award-winning artist, and we have been torturing trees together for 25 years. Over the last year he has been making pots, all slab-built. A few have shown up on FB auctions. Really nice pots.
These three are his:
Here are some more of Ron's pots! This is the start of my collection. I'm credibly drawn to his work and am SO excited to get some trees in these babies!

Not that I'm aware. I've gotten em all off Facebook - which I also despise and only use for bonsai trading
You can also try reaching him direct. I think the Des Moines Bonsai Club can help with his contact information.

I wish more of these potters would list here on Bonsai nut.
There must be a reason they do not.
Thoughts?

Awesome work. Does he have a web site? I don't like facebook and don't use it.
Nope, he just likes to work on trees and make pots. His bonsai buddy (Scott Allen?) markets and sells them on Facebook so Ron doesn’t have to deal with that side of things. He doesn’t do commissions, so if you see something you like, grab it.

Facebook and Instagram have a larger audience, I suspect.
That's a shame, for me anyway
so if you see something you like, grab it.
I guess it just isn't going to happen then. Facebook and the other thing are not something I do. I am very old school. I even use cash.

The bag pot is nice! I always enjoy that shape.

I have wanted this pot for 4 years, and have finally added it to my collection. This is my favorite bonsai pot shape.

I use my husband's FB account for the auctions. He is getting annoyed at all of the trees and pots showing up on his news feed though. If I buy something, I delete the messages real fast. 😇
