The LAB Session 2

The Site of Bonsai | April 6, 2019 | Wollochet House designed by Mary Lund Davis

Session 2, timed for spring, shifted our focus to the container and potting season. The artists reconvened at the Mary Lund Davis house in Gig Harbor, WA to reveal new works in the experiments. Heitzman revealed a cantilevering copper and wood stand made in response to Lang’s container from Session 1. Lang presented three new pots: a cascading container for Heitzman’s stand from Session I and two options for Neil’s styled limber pine from Session 1. After a discussion about the container options, a glazed pot with a metallic sheen was selected and Neil proceeded with potting the pine in its new container.
