A round or oval pot -- unglazed dark brown -- would be nice.

Next time you take pictures try to avoid flash. The shadows behind the tree make it difficult to see what is tree and what is not.

If flash cannot be avoided, move the tree farther from the background. (Or use a black background).

I too like the first front best. Tree has a lot of potential to improve over time. I like the naturalistic style(some figs actually grow like this in landscape when somewhat young) Looks like it is being styled to look like tree rather than other bonsai. Very Happy Very Happy If you choose open canopy with lots of movement instead of conifer pads then I would go with a glazed pot. Maybe oribe green(match foliage) or a blue/green to pick up movement of sky or water. Unglazed is going to match soil/trunk if that's the feel you want. Dustin Mann
