Surprising bonsai story from Bjorn Bjorholm

This story from Bjorn Bjorholm surprised me. Thank you for sharing this personal story.

“Congratulations on your wonderful achievement of 20 years of Shohin Bonsai Europe!
I remember as a kid in high school viewing your work, reading your articles and being inspired to try making shohin bonsai myself.

I know many folks around the world, young and old, have been inspired by your journey to do the same. Shohin bonsai is one of the most difficult aspects of bonsai art, but you have managed to create many fantastic little trees, often with humble material.

I think this is what gets people excited about your work – it’s accessible, wonderfully presented and inspirational to those with access to simple material.

It’s always a pleasure running into you at various events around the world, and I look forward to the next time we can catch up over bonsai!”

Bjorn Bjorholm, Bonsai artist and owner of Eisei-en.
