It is my hope that future articles about bonsai display and books about bonsai display will spend more time about the complex marriage of tree/pot and stand. This marriage cannot and should not be ignored. The stand has always been a very intricate part of the display and it is time that we started treating the stand as part of the image rather than a costly accessory

I couldn't agree more Al.
You have made some very creative stands, I love some of the unusual designs you have incorporated, my favorite is the circular shohin stand, really elegant with simple clean lines. Close second is "Sold, black walnut" very nice.
Thanks for taking the time to share with us.

John,
I think we do indeed need to not only see and study the design of stands, but also learn more about the way to match a stand to the bonsai displayed as well. Attila Soos wrote an excellent article here (http://www.artofbonsai.org/feature_articles/rolestand.php) on the role of a stand, I would love to see more like it.
Great gallery Al and certainly one of a kind!

Will
