The style looks great. You've gotten small leaves which adds to the design
Did you make the pot?

Ebbtide : thanks for nice comment ... whether successful

Rob Kempinski: thank you for comment pot made mr. Svačina ... but because of small misunderstanding is pot bigger than I wanted

Russell Coker: thans for your compliment ... yes pot could be smaller but colour and texture is good isn´t?

Todd Ellis: thanks I appreciate your comment

Well, since you asked - NO! But please understand this is just my feeling. I see a beautiful little tree with fine details. Your pot is too big, too course and too crude for such a tree, in my opinion. I think it's better for kusamono than a bonsai as good as this. A while back there were a lot of pictures of a beautiful shohin exhibition in Taiwan, and another in the UK. These shohin were in amazing pots.

I think you should do something like this...

Hi Martin
Very nice development tree. ThumbsUp
Nice tree. Bud, no pot. I agree with Russell, I think that the tree deserves much nicer pot.

Great transformation! The tree has really developed nicely. I agree about the pot being a bit too much for it...

Glad you're seeing the light Martin. It really is a wonderful tree and needs and deserves a special pot.

You've done a great job!
