Red Pot at Night - Bonsai Delight

Post  Rob Kempinski on Tue Aug 31, 2010 4:07 am

Red glazed pots - you don't see them that often but at a Bonsai Society of Florida convention a few years ago Dale Cochoy was selling this one and it was fine. Now it is supporting this medium-sized Indian Laurel Ficus (Ficus microcarpa). The tree is about 16 inches above the pot top and about 20 inches wide. A few years ago I replaced the nitida foliage with kinmen foliage via grafting. I'd love to get hold of some of those "melon seed" ficus microcarpa leaves for grafting purpposes. Very Happy

Lately this guy has had clip and grow techniques only as I have a tendency to overlook him and don't want to cause wire damage Rolling Eyes however it could use some wire.



Any other red pots out there?

I like the pot, but the reddish tint to the stand seems to clash with the red of the pot. Maybe a dark brown stand would be better?

Red pots are cool! Wish I had one. They are here and there in stock of my local bonsai-dealers, but in the most cases they are really expensive (approx. 100€ when they are from tokoname).
Is this also a Shohin or is it more Chuhin size?

Yes, red pots are not so often seen, because the colour risk to take away the focus from the tree. Especially at larger trees.
For shohin they are much used though, because the smaller size tones down the expression, especially when the trees are arranged at displays with other trees.
I think the colour fits to the tree shown here. The light green colour of the leaves is really enhanced by the pot colour. Well done.

Regarding the sizes, it is like this:
Shohin-bonsai (up to 20 cm / 8 inch high)
Mini (maximum 10cm / 4 inch – the rules of measures are exact and also includes long Jins at Junipers e.g.)
Chuhin (middle size, maximum 45cm / 18 inch)
Kifu (over 20cm, / 8 inch - around 25-35cm / 10-14 inches)

Here a smaller tree in a red pot. Japanese maple. Notice the clear difference in expression of the red colour when looked up close and in a display.

Regards
Morten

This one is really great Morten!
I followed his story on your home page and wished that this nice tree will be part of my own collection. Wink

True Bob, that is a Mahogany stand with some red based stain. I'll have to make a darker colored stand for this guy as I make most of my bonsai stands.

That's a sweet little maple.

You are right - red works well in shohin. I have even seen some really bright yellow glaze that works well for shohin. In the larger pots its tougher to pull off the bright primary colors but Dale did a great job on this pot I feel. It also has a nice texture to it.

Nice Rob!

Martin, maybe you should look for pots made elsewhere instead of Tokoname? You might get the price down.

I make a LOT of red pots, or partly red. My favories are my red ash glases!

Crepe Myrtle in training. This tree needs lots of work, but I like it in this pot. I plan to do some carving and will work on the roots next potting time.

Todd, that is a red pot. What color are the flowers? Hopefully a color to complement the red pot which means either white or green (which I doubt).

Nice red pots. Here are a couple of reddish accent pots that I made a few years back.
