Shohin Bonsai Around My Garden 2

So, In the midst of repotting over the last week, I took the time to snap the annual spring progress photos of my bonsai, and figured I’d share.

Big, old black pine shohin, Hekisui pot. Hopefully I’ll find some time and finish wiring it up this week.

Another fat shohin black pine, Chinese Pot. A lower left branch is being developed, by summer 2014 I should have a nice pad there.

Hawthorn, Koyo pot, in bad need of some wire!

Premna in a Koyo pot.(aka “Nioi Kaede” or “Stinky Maple”, true to the name, the wood, and especially the roots, smell like death!)

Zelkova, broom style, Heian Kozan Jr pot.
And these last 2 aren’t Shohin, they’re Chuhin, but, despite the title of the post, I’ll show them anyway!

Shimpaku with a nice, spiral trunk, Bigei Nanban. Developed some juvenile foliage after working last year, once it grows out it should be nice!

Future Cascade black pine with interesting(and quite frankly surprising when I discovered it) deadwood and hollow trunk. I’ll be taking this one too a workshop this spring with Bjorn Bjorholm, should be a fun one to style! Hope you’ve enjoyed seeing a few trees kicking around my yard, til next time!

About japanesepots

I've been collecting Japanese Bonsai pots for a few years, and feel that the famous, and some of the lesser known but great Japanese pot artists could do with a little more writing and exposure in English. Additionally, this blog will feature My own And others bonsai for discussion. The purpose of this blog is to further knowledge of Japanese pottery and Japanese style bonsai. If you have any questions about Japanese bonsai pottery, or would like to acquire pots by some of the potters presented in the blog, feel free to email me at gastrognome@aol.com
