commissioned pot
« on: October 22, 2012, 07:27 PM »
quick question for everyone one out there. is it bad to commission two pots for the same tree from two different potters. considering each pot is different one is your standard normal pot for the said tree and the other is a unique and different then the normal pot for the said tree but it works well. tell me what you think

Other than bruising the ego of the potter whose pot isn't chosen when it comes time to show the tree (and that info probably doesn't have to be shared), I don't think there's any harm in it.  Actually, supporting two potters seems like a good thing!

Having options available is never a bad thing.  I try to switch pots for each tree at each repotting.  Which reminds me, I need more pots.

The link Andre posted is to one of my galleries. It was created for a few friends and not meant to be shared publicly. That said, I do have many handmade glazed pots for sale! ;) It is great to see more folks getting serious about using high quality ceramics and matching them "properly" to their bonsai.

Best regards,
