Rachel Lang’s Hawthorn in a Dansai ‘special’

John Trott’s large Trident maple-over-rock in a bespoke pot with a new glaze recipe.

Davide Cardin’s Elm potted in a recently custom-built pot for the tree. I think it looks really good!

John Trott’s root-over-rock larch

A better picture of Mo Fagan’s beautiful hinoki cypress grown in the style of a literati English landscape Scots pine

Mo Fagan’s cascade Japanese black pine on a temporary stand. Unfortunately a friend knocked the pot over and it shattered into several pieces. I have made a replacement pot for Mo and hopefully he’ll have the tree repotted soon.

Ray Beddows — the original Azalea that was planted in this pot out grew it so Ray has planted a different tree in the pot.

A more recent picture than the one shown further down of Robin Jehan’s hawthorn in flower for the first time.

I made this pot for Carlos Van De Vaart several months ago for this mugo pine

Pedro Almeida’s Japanese cork bark black pine recently repotted into bespoke pot and now awaiting refinement.  The pot is un-decorated on the rear so it’s like having 2 pots in one!

Mark & Ritta Cooper’s Award winning white pine at the recent John Hanby Bonsai Exhibition. It took the Prize for the best Tree/Pot combination. Congrats to M & R

Hi Dan,

I have just been checking out your site AGAIN, and seeing some amazing trees in your beautiful pots is just wonderful, a joy for all of us to behold.

So I would like to encourage everyone with trees in Dan’s pots to send in their photos, so as we can enjoy their beauty too.

Thank you Dan, for sharing,
