Bonsai Heresy by Michael Hagedorn
Michael Hagedorn, renowned bonsai artist, teacher and author takes us deeper into the art and science of bonsai than you might imagine possible. And he does it with humor and a love for the art that informs the mind and elevates our appreciation.
Bjorn Bjorholm bonsai artist and educator, who like Michael Hagedorn apprenticed in Japan wrote... "Not only does Michael dispel long-held bonsai myths, but he wonderfully weaves personal, often self-deprecating anecdotes into the mix.
Well written, deeply researched, and perfectly timed,
Bonsai Heresy is a must-read for every bonsai enthusiast."
Michael apprenticed with bonsai master Shinji Suzuki in Obuse, Japan from 2003-2006 and now resides and practices bonsai in Portland Oregon, where he founded his Crataegus Bonsai garden and the Portland Bonsai Village. Michael is also the Bonsai Consultant for the Portland Japanese Garden, teaches classes to students from around the world at his garden, and blogs weekly at www.crataegus.com.
Michael's first book Post-Dated: the Schooling of an Irreverent Bonsai Monk has long been a favorite and in our opinion is the best bonsai read in the English language... at least until Bonsai Heresy
