  1. Very nice collection! Can you tell me who’s pots the Korean Hornbeam and maple are? The blu pot that the maple is in looks white with blue in the leafe off picture but a solid blue in the other. I also like the pot that the Hawthorn is in. Regardless of the pots, your trees are an inspiration.

    • Thanks. The KH was in a cream Yosen pot, 1960s, red clay era.
      The maple is in a Namako by Yamafusa.
      The hawthorn has been in so many pots, it’s hard to say which. The light blue pot is a current generation Yamaaki, the tan colored on its in now is an older, pre-war Katoaka Akitsugu, who later went on to found the Yamaaki kiln.

  2. Incredible work!!! 20 years well spent. I’m in year 2 and REALLY appreciate what you share. Thank you for your ebook on JBP and your blog…awesome stuff. Question: Did you collect your Hawthorn or purchase it? Neither answer will take away from that tree…it’s one of the finest Bonsai I’ve ever seen…and did you purposely carve the trunk at the split or find it like that?…great character either way…I was just curious…thank you for your time.

    • Thanks Brian,
      Appreciate the book support! I did collect the hawthorn; found it, sawed it to a stump, dug it, and regrew everything you see above the chop. I carved the split and have been refining it a little over time, but basically have left it to rot slowly and callus.
