Regional Exhibition FFB Burgundy – Franche-Comté – Switzerland :
Like all regional exhibitions you can admire the trees club members but also firms affiliated with the FFB who wish to select their trees for the annual congress of March. Unfortunately I can not go there and I confess that I Regrete.
Three professionals will also be present, and not the least interesting:
« Atelier SHIBUI« , Pascal MARC aka scaloo, a great ceramist. If you are looking for mame and kusamono pots you’ll have plenty of choice. He also creates larger pots. It should also have at its stand a few pieces of his collection of Japanese tableware zisha.
« L’arbre aux papillons« , with Laurent BREYSSE or Niko I do not know. They have a wide selection of bonsai: trees production, imported trees, and especially a large selection of yamadori (mainly Scots pine and oak).
« Les jardins du bonsaï« , Fabrice DECROIX aka nathalensis. He sells yamadori: prunus mahaleb, boxwood, pine uncinata, but also pots and accent plant.
Exceptional bonsaï pots :
It is difficult to expose beautiful bonsaï without beautiful pots. The most interesting often come from Japan or China, and it is not always easy to obtain. Some potters are very famous in Japan and outside their borders, this is the case Motozo, Koyo, Bigei, Horie Bikoh, Matsumoto Shoseki … Often found their pots for sale among professionals in Japan, or on specialized sites like KINBON or S-CUBE BONSAI.

Horie Bikoh – Specialist of shohin and mame pots. You can not flip through a gafu-ten magazine without seeing some of his pots. It is a reference, and enamelling technique close to perfection. You can find his biography a little more detail here. I’ll let you see some pots.
Matsumoto Shoseki – glazed porcelain for shohin. I recently discovered this ceramic flipping through a magazine KINBON. The beauty and delicacy of his pots is striking. The hand-painted designs are very neat but unfortunately it is still difficult to obtain their pots in Europe. His biography is available here, and with a bit of luck there will be a pot for sale.
I will continue the tour of potters regularly, and if you are an European potter and want to offer some pictures of your creations and a little text you can contact me with the contact form on the site.
What the fuck :
See you soon on ActuBonsaï
