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.

13-year-old black pine in a colander

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.
