We’ve seen this incredible bonsai displayed before at the Portland Japanese Garden and at Scott’s presentations. We knew it was a spectacular bonsai. Now, it’s received national recognition again. This time, it won the top award at the 3rd U.S. National Bonsai Exhibition.
Scott Elser's Japanese black pine received two prestegious awards, the The National Award -
Finest Bonsai Masterpiece and the
Nippon Bonsai Society Award - Finest Japanese Style Display. The event was held in Rochester, New York on June 9 and 10, 2012. Over 250 bonsai were on display from all over the country.
The Bonsai Society of Portland is very proud to have such a distinguished member in our group.
Scott is one of the Featured Artists at the 2012 Pacific Northwest Bonsai Clubs Association Convention in September. View the workshops and activities he will lead.
