My name is Ryan Bell and I’ve been collecting bonsai pots since 2011, a year after I began pursuing bonsai seriously, and I now have an extensive collection. After coming across a container without any information, I decided to research bonsai containers, and have since made it my specialty and passion. Since founding this website and beginning to lecture, I have travelled extensively to clubs and conventions in an effort to improve appreciation of ceramics in bonsai art.
My mission is to encourage appreciation of the art of bonsai pottery through accurate information, images, and history. This website is extensive with numerous articles about Japanese potters and bonsai container history, and includes the most extensive Chop, Signature, and Seal database in print, in any language. Lots of great information. To start learning about Bonsai Containers, see the Table of Contents.
Now…..On to the pots!
