Derek is a World renowned ceramic artist—he is a master potter and frequently has his ceramics shown in galleries across the Globe. He has honed his skills for more than 20 years now.
Currently living with his wife in Kyoto, Japan and practicing the art of traditional anagama firing for ceramics in a Kiln he built himself—on the side of a mountain.
If that’s not awesome enough, he hand-digs the clay out of the ground himself, chops the wood for the three day firing and uses no chemical glazes of any kind.
The Bonsaiii Co. is exquisitely lucky to be able to import his one-of-a-kind, world-class ceramics for use as our bonsai pots.
