Kawa is happy to announce the addition of another Japanese taught bonsai artist at the 2013 Joy of Bonsai. When Mike Sullivan and I went to Japan in December 2012 we met a young enthusiastic bonsai artist at Taikan-Ten Show from Tennessee. What a surprise! After talking to Owen Reich I was lucky to find out he would be home from Japan in January and wanted to come to Florida for the weekend of Joy of Bonsai. What luck! So my luck is your good fortune and Kawa Bonsai jumped at the chance to have another top quality teacher at the 2013 JOB. Owen will be assisting Mike Rogers for his surprise demo and working on another tree for an additional demo. So again I invite you to the most exciting bonsai event in Florida with four headliners and a lot of demo material. Our demos will be non stop on both Saturday and Sunday so down load the registration form or register at the door for the event! Don’t miss the opportunity for all this talent for $10 per day!!!!
