Room 104, Casa del Prado, Balboa Park (Note room change)
Pot selection is one of the last decisions made to properly complete a bonsai. It is a difficult and sometimes mind boggling process. Is the color of the pot correct but perhaps too dull or too bright such that it is either complimentary or detracting? Is the pot's design too plain such that it does not add to the overall image of the bonsai? Is it too busy with ornate feet, corner, lip, etc. such that it detracts from the bonsai? Is it too large or small in width or length such that is out of balance with the tree? Is the shape of the pot correct for the style and species of the bonsai? Should the pot be plain or glazed? The June meeting will have Bob Hale leading a lively discussion of the subject.
