Bonsai sold per kilo? ...or should it be art?

Post  helmut_nittel on Tue Dec 07, 2010 2:44 pm

Hello all!

To introduce myself: I´m the worker of Pius Notter and i was born for gardening especially pruning...

I love to follow the postings in this forum and the different perspectives of seeing a tree...
The longer I work with bonsai, the more I see that always more trees on expositions are really huge...

To be honest: one reason for me doing bonsai was because I love ancient trees that are telling stories in one picture and sometimes they are really big.

So I also like big trees but to me means the art of bonsai: making a small tree look big and ancient and to bring that together in a nice shape!

SO! now esthetic is wanted not size!

I´d really enjoy to see you post here some fotos of your best bonsai and your intentions why this is your best tree


greetz to all! yours Helmut!

NOTE: Please be objective (not because it was in grandma´s garden,...)! hold it short(er than I did Wink at least) !

I wonder what are his intentions.... scratch

People in this forum do not post to compete. They post to share their knowledge and experience, to help newbies like me gain ideas upon the progressions of their tree. From stump to an impressive bonsai.

I,m agree with you Hirow

my opinion, I'm regard on both "art and size". I was finished study at fineart university and I must say size are important on both "small and big", big size art give powerful feeling, some kind of elements will not work if it is not regard on size. same way... small size arts give difference feeling as it is fine and also... some elements work well on small.

it yes or no... if no thing small-you will not see the big, and if no have big-you will not get feel of small?.

I have not seen, "who love to create huge bonsai sell his art by measure it weight". Laughing

Thought I'd post this one. First styling this year and I am happy with the result. Without the tape measure, this tree gives the impression of being much larger than it is.

It's hard to say which of my bonsai children is the best or favorite, but I really like this small one - It's been my friend for over 11 years.
Willow Leaf Ficus in a pot and stand I made too. Cool The trunk - tachigari and nebari along with the sillhouette of the tree capture a large tree in only 8.5 inches

Not quite ready for prime time, Jun. Needs more foliage, needs that branch stump eliminated. Nicely planted, however.

Hello Helmut, Folks,

my first and favourite small leaf Fukien tea, mother of all my small leaf Fukiens. Got this in 94 from Woodgreen nursery, somewhere around London. It was a tiny 3 inches in a bottle glass green export glazed Chinese pot. Something about the shrub appealed to me, and I bought it. I think I also wanted to save it from eventual death in a cold climate.

The stand is also special, supposedly imported into Livorno, Italy in the late 60's from an Antique shop.Very heavy and naturally dark reddish wood. Well turned and jointed. I have only 3 or so other stands for Bonsai.

Always brings me joy.
