Max Braverman & Michael Hagedorn
« on: July 18, 2010, 08:41 PM »
Good Evening All,

I have begun collecting pots by American potters. Max Braverman & Michael Hagedorn are two of my favorites. I now own 9 by Braverman and 1 by Hagedorn. My two recent purchases came in the last month. A Braverman was bought at our club auction (The Bonsai Society of Greater St. Louis) and Jim Doyle at Nature's Way graciously agreed to part with the Hagedorn from his personal collection when I visited him in PA. Max as many of you know died several years ago (Sept 2004 if I remember correctly) and all of Michael's ceramics were produced in his days pre Japan and his apprenticeship with Mr. Shinji Suzuki. I'd be interested in seeing photographs of pots from either of these two gentlemen and thought it might be an interesting thread. I'll have Shimsuki take pics of ours and post in a few days. Anyone else willing to share?

Regards,
JRob

Braverman is listed here, as are many other American bonsai potters:

I find it very hard to limit myself to only one or two of them  :).

Rockm,

Sorry if my post mislead. I also have pots from the following American potters, Ross Adams, Jack Bacus, Jim Barrett, Kathy Boheme, Tom Dimig, Chuck Iker, Sara Rayner & Bob Harris (That I can recall off hand) but particularly am attracted to the pots of Hagedorn and Braverman. Shimsuki my son really likes Sara's pots.

I'll be selling pots by some of these potters, Braverman, and Dimig, particularly, also pots by Eldon Leis, Jim Jenigan,Nick Lenz and Steve Jepson, if anyone's interested.  Just shoot me a
Message, if you're interested.  I'm also selling a bunch of Japanese pots.Bunzan, yozan, Heian Chikuzan, Suishoen, antique Chinese...
I don't want to sell these pots...damnit!! But I'm trying to begin funding a trip to Japan next year with Bill Valvanis, so if you're interested drop me a line!

Gastrognome, I would be interested in seeing some pictures of the Japanese pots you have for sale. Is this something that is possible?

I have only one Hagedorn pot. It is not for sale. Wish I had bought more.

The pot is about 6 inches across and about 1.5 inches tall.

Jeffrey,

Time permitting, I will have 3 Bravermans up on eBay next weekend. I'll post a link on this thread then. These are two of my favorite potters as well. Like you, I was part of Michael's study group for a while, so I'm even happier to own one of his larger works. The pot also reminds me of the previous owner who passed away a few years back.
