I finally managed to begin posting links to sites that I frequent and recommend highly, you’ll find it at the top menu bar.
It includes both western and eastern sites about bonsai, pottery, and general tree info. I still have a bunch more to list, as I’d like it to be a pretty comprehensive resource.
If you have any suggestions, or would like me to drop a link to your site, feel free to drop me a line at

In the interim, here’s some pretty pots!
A great Bushuan I picked up and am waiting breathlessly for delivery! Love that swirling red!
A really cool yellow crackle made by Furumoto, at the Bushuan kiln. I’m not sure what the deal with these is. Furumoto has been making tiny glazed pots with frogs and animals perched on them at his own kiln for a while, then all of a sudden these larger pots started appearing bearing Furumoto stamps, stating that they came from the Bushuan kiln. Not sure if they’re working together, or if Fukuda San has taken him as an apprentice of some sort, or what. Perhaps one of my Japanese readers can clarify!
Anyway, I picked up several, in different colors, more on that later….
