Well, I might have done something different (based on one picture) but still, very nice.

Thanks for the comment Jim, its much appreciated. That's the great thing about bonsai, as far as I am concerned, we can all look at a piece of material and see something different in it.

I'm drooling over the pot, the tree is nice too, but the pot....... Do you know the maker?

I love that in Bonsai there are dozens of correct answers to the same question, I would probably have styled it different too, but I like your choice also.

Hi Arihato
Thanks for your comment. The pot is a nice quality, inexpensive Chinese make. It's a lovely clay and it shines up well. here is a link to a supplier

That's a great little tree! I love what you've done with the deadwood and I agree with the other comments about the pot too, very nice fit for it

Thanks to Arihato and NickJ for your encouraging comments. Those pots are excellent value and they come in an interesting variety of shapes and sizes. I think the raw material for this tree was developed from an air layer

On the scroll down was wondering just this bit of information. I like it. Not the typical, very natural feel. I myself one here on the bench have plans not to "twist" up either. An airlayer or cutting though... Keep us posted!

Thank you to Appalachian Owl for your comments. I agree that it has a more natural look than a lot of the material to be found on nursery sale benches
