This pot was custom made for me by Dale. The tree is a collected quercus agrifolia. Height is about 37 inches.

Mike,

That is a nice pot to go with you tree.

I really, really like your tree. It has beautiful movement, and the shari is very interesting. Cool

Thanks for sharing!

Mike,
I think they came out looking real nice together, and, a very nice photo !!
How about a 'scale' shot that I think will suprise a few folks!

Dale, here's the scale shot.
I sent you a pm on bT as to why I decided to put the oak in the pot instead of the juniper. bT shut down shortly after that, so maybe you didn't get the message.

Looking good Mike!!

I didn't get the PM before BT went down. I thought that was a different tree than picture you sent me.

Here's a couple shots of final trimming on it and one of finished fired inside.

BTW, what a couple of handsome young men we are!! Rolling Eyes

Thanks again,

Dale

It's bad enough I have to look at you two when I go to exhibits, but pictures on-line as well? Wink

Nice tree Mike and excellent pot Dale!

Mike, I think the moss distracts from the image, perhaps a more random scattering around the soil surface would look more natual....as it is, it draws the eye.

Hi Mike, wow... what a surprise when I saw the scale of the tree, only then did I fully appreciate Dales great pot... BIG! a truly nice pot/tree combination.

Dale, interesting how you do not single out 'feet' on the pot but use a 'rim' you must be confident that there will be no 'wobble' when the pot is finally fired Shocked

I guess I need to come over the pond to add a bit of glamour king to your events... In the UK we put portraits like these in the window to keep away undesirables jocolor

I too noticed the moss the way it is put around the trunk. If it were an Australian native I would say it is there to try and disguise the Lignotuber.
Which is so prevalent in quite a lot of our trees. The swelling of the trunk at soil base stops a lot of group plantings of our trees.
I do very much like the combination of these two pieces they match very well.
Well done both parties. Very Happy Darky
Ps Dale you are more than welcome at Aus Bonsai Smile

Tony,
We also use pictures like that here in the US to keep away undesirables ! But also dogs and guns! Smile
We are still allowed to have guns! Cool

Re: the feet.
I normally use 3 feet on round pots unless they are very rugged like this one ( for the reason you mention) . Then sometimes just a notch (or three) in the ring of literati/bunjin pots. This pot was a much bigger model of a smaller 8ish" pot I made that Mike sent me a picture of . He wanted one just like it but bigger for a juniper. That is what I did but I used a different clay which I like better for rustic pots. This pot has a very simple decoration. I think I have a close up I'll try to attach.
It's hard to tell in the picture but the foot drainage is comprised of three 1" notches around the rim which aren't very visible as the pot sits on a bench.
I think they go very well together.
Regards,
Dale

I love the 'earthy' feelings of Dale's pots and glazes. I also like the uniqueness of this crepe myrtle.

Well for #1 (if my opinion is of any worth)
I tire of the "always 2 YOUNG GUYS Thing" you guys are just as young as me Very Happy .
#2 (Mike, I think the moss distracts from the image, perhaps a more random scattering around the soil surface would look more natual....as it is, it draws the eye.) As to debate that opinion,,, I can say again(if my opinion is of any worth), but John Naka in his books did write that perhaps using a rock or in this case using Moss can hide or give the illusion of a nebari, hmmm well just me, Smile .
#3 Well Mr. Dale, I have been contemplating this for along time, ? Question? If I send you a picture or pictures of a few trees that I have can we work together to design a or many pots to fit those trees? I am one of some bonsai artists that think Pots are like Shoes,,, you want to get the right SHOES for the DRESS.
Let me know what you all think,
Sincerely,
KJ jocolor

Killer,
Yes, I can do that. These two pots were made to Mikes specs. But, you are better off to TELL ME what you want or show me a picture. I need INSIDE measurements . Don't guess, measure.
Don't do it here. email me.
BTW, It's hard to tell in that last pic but that pot is an OVAL about 18 1/2" long and 5" deep as I recall.

I am curious what the darken dent is supposed to represent, it distracts my eye from the the tree.

That's a scorch mark produced while firing. It is prized by some and dispised by others.
