Blue Decorated Pots 2


Japanese bonsai masters often use old blue pots with or without decoration for their masterpieces. In the west we still lack the courage to do this. Here are some powerful compositions in the Japanese taste.

This pot is not quite as old and can be seen very often.

“Years and years you shall live in abundance”

A beautiful blue decorated pot with fish and plants. The word for “fish”, “YU”, is also the word for “abundance”. The symbol of the fish means wealth. A fish combined with a lotos flower expresses the wish: “Years and years you shall live in abundance”.

Some more nice impressions:
