Elevating my electric-fired, Raku-style tea bowls has been and continues to be loads of fun. Part of it is the fun of finding suitable small trees that could possibly become bonsais. In this case, I found a small maple tree, about 30cm high and with massive leaves. I made the choice to think outside the possibility f having a small leaved plant for this Bonsai. It may be a more traditional choice, but the large leaves gave me pause and gave it a more Canadian feel. Our maple are large and proud, and so is this little tree.
