The Bonsai and Kusamono Pottery of Horst Heinzlreiter
Images by Horst Heinzlreiter, Helen Bergstrom, and Carl Bergstrom.
A bonsai pot is more than simply a container. It is a home for a living thing; it is a frame for a work of art; and when fashioned by the right hands, it can be a work of art in its own right. We are pleased to present a gallery of the bonsai and kusamono pottery of Horst Heinzlreiter, an Austrian ceramic artist known world-wide for the innovative, organic forms that he creates for kusamono and the ageless, rustic perfection of his bonsai pottery. Horst is also an accomplished bonsai artist, specializing in Mugo pine and larch that he collects himself from the alps. Additional photographs of Horst's work can be seen on his website and in Wolfgang Putz's kusamono gallery here at the Art of Bonsai Project.
