Go with Ron Lang. Won't have to pay duties, worry about import etc. Ron has excellent pots and will work with you on design and glazes.

Hmmm.... I like them all...lol.

I'm fairly new so someone with more experience will be more help, but I think I'm leaning toward the first one. -- To me they all really have somewhat of the same feel, which is good I suppose as you seem to really know what you want. Now you just have to choose... .

I'm looking forward to hear what those with more trained eyes have to say. Smiley

Guys, these are old shots of pots that are gone. I don't keep a 'shelf stock'. once made they go to shows or back into wrapping in boxes for the next show. Lots of the pots I do are commisioned. To make a comissioned pot I need INSIDE dimentions LxWxD, no guessing! I no longer do pots comissioned under a "about" size. It leads to disappointment of everyone.
I thought these examples would be good for a yew and all are unglazed.
Owen, good choice, this was the pot I had on display at the 5th World  Show in Washington, DC in 2005 in the "By the Hand Of" display. The ONLY one I entered that the the 'Judge' seemed to think was as worthy as the many he had in the show/book.

Here are a few more examples I think would look good with a yew.
BTW, yews are one of my FAVORITE bonsai choices! I've been collecting them since about 1980.

Nice pot, but, not quite sure how much different than the Lenz pot you started with, especially color?.
I imagine Nics was hand built,is this new pot molded?

When you get the foliage finished on this tree the Lenz pot will be pretty close to perfect. Sparse needs a smaller pot.

It's only a little smaller not really by much the lens pot depth is 3.2 inches as the walsall pot is 2 so really I was just fine tuning the pot size if it doesn't look better than the lens pot I could just repot the tree back next year or the following year. But I really want a little darker pot also

I am sorry it didn't fit, it is a very nice pot, I am sure you can use it for another really nice tree. Have a new picture of the yew after it was repotted?
