Each year, on the second Saturday in May, bonsai enthusiasts throughout the world honor World Bonsai Day.

On this very special day, clubs, organizations, and individuals throughout the world are encouraged to reach out to their respective communities and share the joy and brotherhood we all feel in the art of bonsai.  A lecture series organized by Andrew Robson, will be presented at the Portland Japanese Garden on May 9th.  Details about the speakers is forthcoming but I know one of them because it’s me!  I’m so looking forward to spending an hour discussing my creative process and the evolution of some of my antique Japanese glazes and collected glaze elements from throughout the western US.  More info about the day-long lecture series to come.
