One of my favorite activities related to the display of Bonsai is the pot selection. Will be showing a young black pine in the exhibit Bay Island Bonsai morning and the boat is used for last year will not show exactly the quality.

Here are 11 options for the tree. Some are very good to me, others not so much. A couple of my favorites are either a little too small or too large. Any favorite combinations?

Pot 1 – ridged sides

Pot 2 – ancient Chinese

pot 3 – style nanban

pot on the 4th – Reiho

pot 4b – same pot from the other side

pot 5 – pot drum

pot 6 – shallow dish

Pot 7 – nanban

Pot 8 – pot flower-shaped

Pot 9 – square pot

Pot 10 – Bunzan

Pot 11 – square pot

for the final selection, reached 17th annual exhibition bay island Bonsai this weekend or stay tuned to future issues of the exhibition.
