Magic Ceramics

I’ve just posted a sales page for accent pots by Magic Ceramics. Magic, or to be true to his real name ‘MACIEJ’ Targosinski is a great bloke who I met through the Leinster Bonsai Club.

He has a passion for bonsai especially mame but has turned his hand to ceramics. I asked him to make some more accent pots and well, things got out of hand 🙂 So here we are now with myself helping him promote his accent pots via my blog. He has a great range of ideas and sizes with glazes galore! He has another batch coming before Christmas which I can’t wait to see.

I’m not making money out of this partnership although I do get my pick of the pots which is a nice perk 😉 I think that it’s important to support new and local talent and Maciej certainly fits the bill.

If you are interested in any of the pots please note the reference number and enquire via my ‘Contact Me’  tab at the top of the page.

Some Random Thoughts on Shohin Display

Robert Nocher Shohin Bonsai

I have been specialising in shohin sized trees for about 3 years now. In that time, I have put together a collection of about 50 shohin sized trees. Despite having that number to choose from, finding 5 that work together and are sufficiently well developed and presented to be considered show worthy, is proving to be quite a challenge.

This is the best that I can come up with at the moment

display

When I think about trees that work together in a display, I am thinking about the relative proportions of each tree in the group. I want trees that are all approximately the same size. If you have 1 or 2 trees that are a little larger than the others in the group, the eye is immediately drawn to that.

Take a look at this next picture, which was taken in February of this year.
