I chose this tree by Guillaume Godderis as the recipient of my "Best Tree and Pot Combo Award", a boxed set of 3 shohin pots, the very elegant bunjin juniper, IMHO, was perfectly matched with the Tokoname pot it was in.

Andy,
Looks like a great show! I am looking forward to more photos soon.

BTW, I think you made a good selection on that last one. I love the silhouette with the movement of the pot in the gravel.
Good eye mate!

Looks like the Monkey's had a rare old time. How did the pots go down?

Hi Will

Yes the pots went down very well thanks, I had a really good time and was made to feel welcome, even if my French was very limited Embarassed Mr Pitt and I mastered the international sign language for " Do you want a bigger pot or a smaller one" Wink

All the best

There were many a good tree at the show and it was a hard decision to make but as you said IMO the twin trunk juniper was light, elegant and the bunjin pot complimented it perfectly.

If my memory serves me correct the stand was made from thin metal with a slate top. I think the tree was also exhibited at the Noelanders Trophy this year

It was a good gig, both Mr Pitt and I had great fun with the language barrier Embarassed
