Wow!
Lecture from Mr. Kunio Kobayashi (小林國雄)
A professional of BONSAI
We are so glad to see him in person,
as we always saw him on TV in Japan. 

He taught us three points:
*Characteristic
*Harmony
*Taste

Of course, putting effort and your original creativity!





At the beginning, Mr. Kobayashi taught us how to repair the branches of wood, 
speedily and confidently!
Next would be the use of wire to shape the branches.

He also taught us how to recognize good plant!
1. Roots of potted plants - the performance of strong vitality
2. Moss - give a sense of stability and a sense of quality
3. Dry and veined bark - to convey the historical sense of years 
4. A branch that stretches out of the trunk
