Master’s Gallery #2: Group Displays
From left to right: unidentified grass, Japanese black pine (Pinus thunbergii), flowering ‘Nippon Bells’ (Shortia uniflora) companion plant, suiseki (viewing stone), another unidentified companion, and a very stately Needle juniper (Juniperus ridgida). By Masao Komatsu.
Each group display in this post is by a single artist. Each display shows mastery in two art forms: bonsai and bonsai display. The photos come from an article by Saburo Kato in Bonsai Today issue 43.
The forest on a slab is a spruce (probably Ezo). That’s a pine on the construction on the right. This display is by ‘The Magician’ Masahiko Kimura.
Hornbeam (Carpinus laxiflora) forest on a slab and a Shimpaku juniper on the rock. This image captures only half of a display by Grand Master Saburo Kato.
