Have you ever broken a bonsai pot or slab and ended up throwing it in the wheely bin?
Many of us have.
Too many of us think that if a pot isnt "perfect" that it will never look any good with our tree in it.
Recently, I was asked if I had any broken/cracked bonsai pots that I was going to chuck out. Hmmm... strange question I thought. Normally people want solid unbroken uncracked pots-brand new.
On questioning him he was adamant they would definitely have a use. So I quite happily gave him a couple of rejects from my latest kiln firing.
Now this bloke is obviously talented. To think outside the square and make use of these two pieces of pot and create a beautiful forest/group planting of beech is something to be proud of.
