Sometimes people surprises you. In this case, the surprise is about bonsai friendship. Marianne Thomasson from the US, shipped four of her very well crafted and beautiful shohin raku bonsai pots to me. Why? Because she appreciated my work and wanted to show it by giving away some of her work. I therefore want to show my appreciation of this kind act. I look forward to find some plants that will go well with the pots, and many thanks to Marianne for her dedication.
