Kusamono
« on: July 14, 2014, 02:57 PM »
One of the workshops my son and I took while at the Nashville Show was on Kusamono taught by Young Choe. She  studied traditional art – ink painting and calligraphy – in her native Korea before she moved to the United States. While volunteering at the National Bonsai & Penjing Museum, she was able to bring her artistic talent together with her knowledge of horticulture to create kusamono. She traveled to Japan to study this unique art form with the master kusamono artist, Keiko Yamane. Extreemly intersting and informative. MC2 pottery was even comissioned to make the special pots that were used. The material used was from Kusa Farm (another vendor at the show I'd highly recommend) Perhaps my son will post some pictures of our finished items before I get home from work this evening. If you get a chance to take one of her workshops do. Sign up immediately. Well worth the fee. JRob

Interesting pots from MC2, I like them. What is the species mix in each? I don't recognize the blooms.
