We have looked at Yusen pots for a very long time and appreciated them for what they are – perhaps the highest quality painted pots used for bonsai. They are highly collectible and almost always beyond our budget. However, one day at an auction Peter ran across this pot and Mr. Tanaka purchased it and gave us the opportunity to buy it from him. We are pleased that both occured.
So we wanted to share some photos with you. Click the photo for a larger version.
The detail work on the pots are just incredible. The very fine brush strokes to create these kinds of lines add the beauty of the pot. Well instead of us talking about them why don’t we just allow the photos to speak for themselves.
Shooting these photos meant a lot to us because Peter Tea was over today and we were working on photographing numerous pots and suiseki and then color correcting in Adobe Lightroom. It will allow us to create a few more posts that we have been meaning to do for a while but just haven’t gotten around to setting up the equipment. We hope you enjoyed viewing this Yusen.
