I think this link was published before and not many comments
An exhibition was held involving a pairing of potter and
bonsaist to explore and expand traditional compositions.
It's being discussed on one of the "tree-geek" forums and
it's really a love it or hate it thing. These stances come
from either those inexperienced in both realms or whose
major focus is bonsai. I think there are very few that have
a deep understanding of the pottery making process,
container use history, etc. We just "follow the rules" or
choose solely based on "gut" aesthetic response.
I was hoping that non-bonsai folks might offer comments.
Does it "work" for you either as a strictly artistic
composition, or how about as a potter? Why or why not?
You can either share comments with me directly and I'll pass
them on or if you'd like to check out the forum and comment
Thanks in advance!
