Item Details

Traditional bonsai can be complicated, time consuming, expensive, and steeped in history and tradition. But at its most simple, it's really just planting done in a tray or container. Keshiki bonsai is a revolutionary approach that involves creating living pieces of art using readily available plants and containers. This dazzling book features 37 stylish projects with simple, step-by-step instructions that anyone can follow. The projects start simple, with five designs that feature moss combined with unique containers. Readers then move on to six designs combining moss, small trees, and containers. The next ten projects add perennials to the mix, and the final ten projects have it all: moss, trees, perennials, and stones. Each project is made with a wide variety of containers, from the most delicate, artisan clay to a repurposed ramekin and a simple box. Previously, the techniques, tips, and insights of keshiki bonsai were available only to Japanese enthusiasts. Now, for the first time, Western readers can join in creating these miniature masterpieces. Learn how a garden, a forest, or even a stream can come to life within the bounds of a small container.
