A new concept of viewing and perceiving bonsai is introduced at the spring bonsai exhibition, Ga-shun-ten arranged by Fuchi Bonsai (Morten Albek, Johnny Eslykke and Torben Hornstrup Sottaku Pedersen).
The Bonsai Ceremony is a totally new way of introducing the art of displaying bonsai in the Tokonoma, based on the Japanese Tea Ceremony and Ikebana. We hope this will enhance the experience of bonsai display and bonsai as an art form. Bonsai needs progress as any other art form. We hope this new way of showing the classical bonsai display aesthetics, making use of old traditions in a new context, will raise the knowledge and appreciation of bonsai. How it will be performed you have to wait and see after the spring exhibition, or take part 🙂
