After enjoying the art of Bonsai for a couple of years, I started sketching some of my own ideas for pottery designs. Not having easy access to a kiln, I was turned on to concrete by my uncle, Solomon Bassoff, who is a concrete sculptor. He makes wonderfully whimsical large scale sculptures for places like zoos, children’s hospitals, and other public places. After discussions with him, and lots of additional research, I decided to pursue concrete as my medium of choice.

Each concrete pot is cast by hand in a mold, then various treatments and color finishes are applied. The molds are of course made by me, and of my original designs.

I have sold roughly 30 pots through one of the top Bonsai masters in the United States, Ryan Neil at Bonsai Mirai.

Below are some photos of various designs and color treatments.
