I scratched down that two last night. Or I’ll find a professional who can make pots from my drawings, or I’ll learn pottery... Either, you’ll see the results.

Nice sketches.
Think about doing some shallow ones, oval, for the maples.

Thanks :)
Oki, I’ll do! Can we have a little brainstorming to what form and what color for a specific tree, before I launch?

Black Pines are masculine, go well with unglazed straight, sturdy pots.
Feminine plants, as cascade Azaleas, can have more elaborate, curvy pots, generally glazed.
There are rules, and you can study them, they make sense.
Maples ask for shallow pots, as they have shallow nebari.

Nice! Thanks! :) I’ll try to find everything about the subject, and I’ll coming back with concrete ideas.
Did you saw in the Greg-Ceramics website, he give suggestions about different glazes for different type of trees? The English translation isn’t the best, but in French it’s really informative. I really need to buy some from that guy...

I’m sure in the beginning I’ll have bumps, specially cause currently none of my trees are suitable for bonsai pot. Looks like now I’ll do the study and creation job in advance. I’m sure you’ll see some really crazy ceramics, which cannot fits in the bonsai philosophy, but forgive me please... I’m not a Japanese master and I’ll never became one.

That “3D sketch” just happened. It was fun, so I decided to learn it. Hope the next one I won’t screw up like this one...

That's a good start!
Are you going to fire it?
Glazed or unglazed?
I still find it too deep...

Well, it will be fired just to preserve, but I don’t think I’ll ever pot a tree in it. First time I worked with pottery clay and everything what could be wrong, went wrong.
Yep, about the deepness.. 6 cm. Happened that I take real bonsai pot sizes, but didn’t counted the legs, so it became just that deep. X)
