  1. Hi Ryan,
    What a truly inspirational Site — is your pot interest strictly confined to Japanese pots or do you also consider pots from the kilns of Western potters?

      Dan,
      It’ll take you a while to get through to this post, if you’re new:-). So scroll down to the Pots from My Collection section and check out “Collection 10: Western Potters”
      http://japanesebonsaipots.net/table-of-contents/
      I like quite a bit of the work that Western potters do. The purpose of this site, though, is to provide information on Japanese and Chinese pottery that is sorely lacking in the west, leading to criminal price gouging and disappointment. That being said, you can send me some of your fine bonsai pottery any time, it won’t get chucked in the bin, I assure you ;-)
