William will help you to choose the right pot for your bonsai.

Since William first came into contact with bonsai in 1978 he has sought challenges. Now he is a bonsai artist with his own line of carving tools and speciality hand made bonsai pots. He does bonsai demonstrations in the Netherlands, and elsewhere in Europe. He is a proponent of ‘Western Style’ bonsai.

In September 1998 William won 1st prize in the “best self-grown” bonsai section (imported trees not allowed) during the Edo Bonsai Trophy.

We make pots from 3cm to 100cm diameter.
The colour, size and shape of your pot should match the design of your bonsai.
