Personalities

The history of Cape Bonsai Kai is enriched by the many bonsai artists who have over the years of its existence contributed in some way to what it is today. Individuals appearing in the following pages will remind many of cherished memories, to others they remain legend. Unfortunately those of us who were not around during the early years will never have the opportunity of meeting many of these individuals, but through these pages it is hoped they will learn a little about the person behind the name.

Tony Harrison

Tony started growing bonsai under the tutorage of Bob Richards in 1978 when he was a member of the Cape Bonsai Kai of which he has happy memories. He was inspired by the variety of Bob's collection and the excellence of the olives grown by Kai members.

Random Bonsai Tip

Using deadwood can improve and enhance a number of problematic aspects in the design of a tree. If the tree doesn't have a satisfactory apex, create one with a jin. A shari can be used as a focal point or it can give movement to an uninteresting trunkline.
