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.
Many years ago I spotted some bonsai trees at a corner market one night in Taipei. In my broken Chinese I asked if the store owner was willing to teach me how to create these miniature trees. He gave me the address of a night school where all the instruction was in Chinese. My Chinese ability is not good and although I was learning bits and pieces, I really wasn't getting all I wanted from the course. I heard plenty of 'oooos and ahhhh's but had no idea what the teacher was saying. The best parts were when the teacher would start shaping or cutting up a tree that ended up looking like an ancient wonder.
The mystery for me 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...
Throughout the journey I discovered the joy of ceramics. Bonsai and pottery are close friends so it was only a matter of time before I was introduced to her.
