Hi everybody,

today I received a wonderful gift from the German potter, Horst Heinzlreiter. He sponsored one of his pots, as a price in a Kob contest and I won it.  Grin

Horst would custom make this pot for me, so I asked him to make my pot with the cracked and damaged surface that he created so beautifully on some of his other pots that I had seen.  I was also able to choose the colour I liked and the size of the pot! 27cm/10,5 inch by 23cm/9 inch.

And today the pot arrived at my place of work, as a well-packed surprise birthday gift! It was so exciting to unwrap this pot, that  I had never seen before! And I was not disappointed when I first laid my eyes on it!  I was really amazed and then impressed! I think it is so beautiful! The colours, the texture and total impression this pot gives to me, I love to look at it and I love to touch it!

I think that the important work that potters do for bonsai is underrated. And I do believe that some are great artists, that deserve a lot of credit from us artist, that use their beautiful Art as a home for our Art to live in! This pot deserves…no demands, a special tree as his partner. And that’s a sign of a good pot for me!

Thanks, Horst, I will try to find the perfect tree for your wonderful pot!

Hope you like it as much as I do?!
