Welcome to All in One Bonsai

Bitten by the Bug


Welcome to All in One Bonsai...a blog that aims to remind me of what I have forgotten. Over the years I have been finding out as much as I can about the art of bonsai. I hope the information in this blog will shed some light to the beginning bonsai enthusiast out there.


I saw some bonsai trees at a corner market one night in Taipei and asked the guy if he was willing to teach me how to create these miniature trees. He directed me to a night school where all the instruction was in Chinese. My Chinese ability is very ordinary at the least so although I was learning bits and pieces, I really wasn't getting all I wanted from the course. The best parts were when the teacher would start pruning a beautiful tree or when he showed us how to repot a bonsai. The mystery was still out there but my interest wasn't waning, if anything it fueled my motivation to find out more. And so I did.


Let the adventure begin...


Recently I have discovered the joy of pottery. Bonsai and pottery are close friends so it was only a matter of time before I was introduced to her. Welcome to All in One Bonsai...and pottery.


Feel free to visit my site where you can purchase some of my handmade pottery. Quite a few pieces have been wood fired as it is the prefered method here in Taiwan:

Taiwan Bonsai Exhibitions

Time to Show Off

In November 2012, I went to see my first bonsai exhibition here in Taiwan.  Since that time I have learnt that Taiwan often exhibit their bonsai at different stages throughout the year.  The exhibitions usually last about a week and admission is free.  

November in Taiwan is at the end part of Autumn.

I hope you enjoy some trees from Taiwan.  



Pine.

Interesting scene.

I like the perspective.

A very low left branch.  




Nice grass.


Bunjin


In this exhibition there were painting in the background that created the setting.  It was a clever touch.

Some small juniper bonsai.








A good view from there.





This was one of my favorites.





An excellent trunk.



A bit of fun.
