The third tree displayed was styled about 3 years ago by Matt Reel, when he was an apprentice to Shinji Suzuki. It won the Prime Minister Award, the top award in the show.

Matt is extremely talented, and lives in Portland, OR.
And he's a good dude to boot!

A fellow bonsai-ist and I have Matt (and Bobby Curttright) coming to SLC 2x a year. Both have been great to work with.

Matt posted the Kinbon article about the styling of this tree on Facebook. Interesting images of his work from the last year of his apprenticeship.
