Ron Lang Bonsai Containers

McDonald Street ProductsThe challenge of the bonsai potter is to provide fresh options, subtlety and variety for bonsai artists. Pots that come on strong, that make too much of a statement all on their own and have too much "ego" are difficult to marry off.

I try to make containers that have life, that take breath, that move, that are not static. The successful pairing of tree and container is a collaborative gestalt.

Bonsai Monk, Bonsai by the Monastery

Bonsai Monk, Bonsai by the MonasteryThe Monastery of the Holy Spirit was established in Conyers, Georgia on March 21, 1944. The search for God, common to all human beings, and which normally develops alongside other occupations, is for a monk his sole occupation. Daily life for the monks consist of prayer, contemplation, work and harmonious living with others.

There are several industries at the Monastery that provide work and revenue for the community, one of which is Bonsai By The Monastery Greenhouse.
