You Don’t Have to Go to Japan to Study Bonsai with Bjorn


fujiThis powerful little White pine-over-rock is from the Fujikawa International School of Bonsai website.

Yesterday we mentioned Bjorn Bjorholm’s upcoming Advanced Bonsai Coourse with Bonsai Empire (see  below). This got me thinking about Bjorn’s history here on Bark, so I took a little journey through our archives and came up with this from June, 2013, one of our earliest Bjorn posts

The post was titled Study Bonsai in the Old Country. It featured the Fujikawa International School of Bonsai and Bjorn’s role their at the time. Here’s your link if you’d like a little bonsai history.

This very unusual Shimpaku got sliced a bit (mea culpa, but if you look at the original photo below, you'll understand). Aside from the very radical twist in the trunk, how often do you see a tree where the all the branching and the entire crown are off to the side hanging out in space like this?


There must be another solution to this problem. Still, great tree.
