List of potters

Post by Leigh Taafe »

Hi Everyone

Is there a list somewhere of commercially recognised Australian bonsai potters somewhere?
If not, is there someone in the industry that could help me compile a list?
Cheers,
Leigh.

That is a list I would like to see. Being relatively new to the practice, and living in the sticks. Finding pots seems to be one of the hardest and most frustrating things, especially bigger ones.

This would be most useful. Members of the Albury Wodonga Bonsai Society asked this question of me at out most recent meeting.
Along with that, I have a thing for pots....can't seem to get enough of them :)

Surprisingly there's a few threads on this in the ""Pots, benches and stands subforum, like this one

The challenge is it's very much a moving target, as potters change their output areas almost as quickly as the average bonsai fan changes species. And that's before we argue about exactly what "commercially recognised" means.

I could be really lazy and say that anyone listed on someone's shop site is commercially recognised & therefore define the answer to be anyone who's listed on a commercial site (such as bonsai island). But that would be ignoring more than half of the potters I know of, some whom only exist on facebook or similar.
