Hi Giang,

They are wonderful and i enjoyed your little mudmen, very creative. I thoroughly enjoy penjing, pity there isnt enough of it in english for me to study, every text available i have bought but are mostly pictures.

Look forward to updates Smile

Hi Giang;

You have many strange and beautiful mud men too, but the sample is collected or are you buying that? Each object has a name meaning separate or not? I love collecting all kinds of style to your mudmen.

Chao anh Vinh,
I sculpt each figurine and each mud figurine has my stamp, the date (month, year) and the number of production.

For exemple, this bonsai penjing figurine is identified by my stamp, the month (01), the year (12) and the number of production (No 2)





Each mud bonsai figurine takes me about 1h15min of work. I wait for 2 weeks (because wet clay gets explosed with high temperature). Then I use the electrical kiln to fire these mudmen figures at 1280°C, during 12 hours.

I get the inspiration from Zen short stories and try to bring positive messages to people.

Regards,
Giang

Thank you Todd, David, Vinh,
hoping that my main character, this zen monk will bring you positive thoughts in daily life.
Right now, I work for bonsai shops around the world, clubs, and bonsai penjing organizations. You can also get my mudmen figures by giving me an email. My Bonsai Figurines studio is currently based in southern France.















regards,
Giang

Nice work. Have you ever tried making western (European, North American or African based figures)?

Hi,
In any art piece, the artist, the artisan...has always an idea, a thought...to send to people, who are admiring it. Like a bonsai or a penjing artist, through a tree, whatever the species, he has a message to send to us. I simply use a piece of mud and make a figure and try to send positive messages to people through it. The art of mudmen figures has been associated to bonsai penjing for more than 1400 years.

Regards,
giang
