This is an additional page to the regular bonsai pot page where I will post some of my rarely made shohin pots.

Making small pots is very fiddly and time-consuming and often much more difficult than making the bigger bonsai pots which is why I don’t make many.

Hi Dan,

What a great little pot you’ve just made for my little cork bark Black pine, I only hope the tree can do it justice.

How do you manage to keep coming up with these new pots?
Keep it up, you’re doing a fine job, now what else do I need a pot for?

Cheers Mate,

Your work is fantastic! I’m truly amazed at the originality and attention to detail each pot receives…I hope someday I’ll be able to create some Bonsai worthy of them 🙂

Hello, Dan!
Your pots impressed me much. Is it possible to buy some? I’d like to discuss the purchase, is it possible?

Hi Dan,

I am a long-time fan of your work and I may finally have a tree worthy of one of your pots. It’s a ‘kifu’ sized (11 inches high to be precise) cork bark Japanese black pine with a powerful nebari and a fat trunk (no apparent reversed taper!). Please drop me a line if you’d like to have a look at some photos of the tree to assess whether you are interested in making a pot for it. Thanks!

Hey Dan,
You have the most amazing pots I have ever seen! I’m quite in awe of more than a few of them. And your glazes are beautiful. Is it possible to purchase some of your pots?
I look forward to seeing more of your work soon.
