Some years ago I was passing by a Monumental Stone mason's Yard and I spotted a slab of slate lying, which I was able to "acquire" and yesterday I carved it to a Bonsai pot, now I need tree for it

What do you think of my attempt?The slab was 11inches by 9inches ,I marked the 1inches walls, then with a 4inch grinder and diamond blade made lots of cuts across the the centre in a criss-cross pattern then chipped away all cuts very carefully with a chisel, to form the hollow section. The front edge and the tops were slowly de-laminated with a fine bladed chisel to form the rough top and front edge. Now only to find the right tree, a Yew or Larch or perhaps Oak, any offers LolSlate Bonsai Pot Imag1112

That's really a stunning pot - great job.

You don't say the internal dimensions?

It will be quite shallow so you'd need a tree that copes with a small pot.
