Returned from one the best quality Trophy exhibitions to date. The quality was overall higher this year, and the visitor numbers must have been a record. Saturday was extremely crowded, and therefore I didn’t manage to take photos of everything. I also had a big number of talks with old friends and made new ones.
I want to thank everybody for taking the time to talk and share their love for this amazing art form.
The reactions on the small Mame bonsai display I set up for the Trophy this time were really nice. I am glad it touched the hearts the way it did. Not being a classical large display, but aimed for a light feeling, with a more simple poetic expression. Well received and spoken about a lot.

Also, all the messages coming in afterwards makes this event special for me. So much passion and friendly comments make it all worth it.
Here is a full gallery from the event, and I apologize for not being able to capture it all. Most focus on Shohin and a glimpse of the rest. Still 174 images to watch and a video from the Shohin part you find in the previous blog post or in the video library: https://shohin-europe.com/bonsai-video-studio-2/almost-friday-trophy-2023-shohin-bonsai-exhibition/
