The Art of Bonsai

Bonsai, pronounced “bone-sigh”, is an Asian art form using cultivation techniques to produce small trees in containers that mimic the shape and scale of full size trees.

Bonsai is an art of illusion that takes practice in many different forms of manipulation of trees & plants such as pruning, wiring, shaping, the creation of deadwood, etc., to create the appearance of age. Famous bonsai master John Naka once said, “the object is not to make the tree look like a bonsai, but to make the bonsai look like a tree.”
