Jim has been a featured speaker at many bonsai conventions and clubs and has worked
for many bonsai associations. He is past president of Bonsai Clubs International, the first
president of Golden State Bonsai Federation, the founding president of the Santa Anita
Bonsai Society and currently serves on the American Bonsai Society's board of directors.
Always interested in ceramics, Jim has for the past three decades been making bonsai
pots. Although known for his shohin and mini-pots, his main interest lies in making large
containers modeled after Japanese- and Chinese-style pots.
This pot, seen at the National
Arboretum, measures 40" by
31" by 10" and required 230
pound of clay when it was
made. For the fascinating
story of how Jim did it, see
Bonsai Today, 54, March/April,
1998, "Anatomy of a Pot."
