Bonsai As Art

The time has come for American Bonsai.

The Artisans Cup exists to showcase Bonsai as a true art form. We’re starting a movement to reveal the beauty of the ongoing collaboration between humans and nature that occurs during the process of training a tree. This process, currently experiencing surging growth in North America, is symbolic of the struggle for life in which all living things take part, and highlights the similarities and differences between people and trees. It is a poignant representation of life itself, with all of its challenges and successes, its hardship and joy.
