I have just returned from the Joy of Bonsai show that was held in Bath, U.K.
Part of the exhibition was dedicated to "New Art"
AoB1 shows a Larix displayed in a "moon" pot within a black tokonoma.
AoB2 is a Blackthorn juggling whilst riding a unicycle.
AoB3 is totally artifical. Resin trunk and deadwood with plastic foliage.

If I may call them anything: a classic, a wink and a hoot! [in some order]

Do you happen to know who the makers are?

Thanks!

Nice to see any deep philosophy through bonsai; humor is even better ;) Somehow, I don't remember hearing of potted trees meant to be funny very often! Are there more of the kind where these come from?

['would think this is one Q meant to stay in the open hopefully; although a forum of two is not much of a forum]

Sorry, i forgot i posted this here.
The "Moon" pot was made by John Pitt who also styled the tree that he planted in it.
The "Unicycle" was styled by Simon Temblett. He used polystyrene balls to shape the branches.
The last one was made by Paul Finch and was an exact copy of a tree styled by kevin Wilson.

This part of the exhibition was dedicated to new forms of display.
It was recieved as a 50% success by the "Bonsai" folk.

I recently put a tree on display using a background i made a few years ago. This also had a similar result with viewers.
