A Sam Miller Pot

As I write this in early January 2018, the pot doesn’t yet exist. Only a brief exchange between Sam (Intermountain Bonsai) and me, and an agreement that it would be made. The pot was commissioned for this ume, which has lived in this Tokoname pot by Touyou for the last 6-7 years.

Looking through Sam’s Intermountain Bonsai images, the four I sent him as my vision for the pot were two for the shape:

And two for the glaze:

I told him I was trying to replicate an antique Chinese Namako container, about 13.5″x4″ deep.

Now, fast forward to the result…

And the repot…

Thanks Sam, well-done!
