Here is an update to follow on from a recent post from Graham Simpson of Dragonfly Bonsai pots. Graham was kind enough to share his new developments and recent work so here is a sneak preview prior to the Swindon Winter Image Show on Sunday 24th February 2019 when you can see Dragonfly bonsai pots up close on his stand.
Experiments with clay will sometimes bring surprises. The unexpected new colours or textures can lead to inspiration. A finish that looks red metallic has inspired me to create pots with an industrial feel to them.
I felt this could prove useful to those wanting to imply a man made aspect in their bonsai display. An environment such as mines, quarries or other post industrial setting has been the theme of interesting displays recently.
Here are a few newly finished pots but checked out Graham’s previous post for more details of the journey. Cascade pots are a favourite of mine as the flat sides gives plenty of space create an interesting surface.
Looking forward getting your reaction to my work at this years Winter Image show on the 24th February 2019.
