In the past we’ve featured some neat Friday features on bonsai, like magnetic tree bases for your favorite trees or bonsai in space, and this week there’s even more fun to be had!
Forbes recently featured the Japanese artist Takanori Aiba, who carefully crafts the shape of bonsai trees through traditional growing techniques to create playful, tiny worlds unto themselves.
Pairing the trees with models and miniatures, each work becomes its own imaginative space that tells a unique narrative. Both the works themselves and Aiba’s explanation of the process are fascinating, so be sure to check out a large number of works on Aiba’s website and Forbes’ full piece.
