GNOBS, Guy Guidry, and Bald Cypress

Late last year, in an effort to broaden my collection and knowledge towards native American species, I signed up for a bald cypress workshop with Guy Guidry, and joined the Greater New Orleans Bonsai Society.
The workshop was quite enjoyable. Guy is full of energy and enthusiasm for bonsai and design, and was able to make some good looking starts from what was, in all honesty, for the most part, pretty dim material.
I wouldn’t hesitate to take another cypress workshop with Guy, and look forward to some more activities with the club.
Here’s some pictures:

And the finished product. This will go in with my tropicals for a month to get a headstart on growth.

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
