Cherry Blossom

This is my most recent piece of art, and will be taught in the 2013 Bonsai Workshop in Chennai and Bangalore. Without even having the chance to take a sneak-peak of the Bonsai, over 30 students joined our 2013 workshop having faith in Clay Flower Art. I'd like to thank all my students for trusting us.

Many are asking us whether we need to buy the trunk for the workshop.Every part of the Bonsai including the trunk is made of clay only which you will be making it in the workshop.

The cherry blossom '(Sakura 櫻; さくら) is Japan's unofficial national flower. It has been celebrated for many centuries and holds a very prominent position in Japanese culture. There are many dozens of different cherry tree varieties in Japan, most of which bloom for just a couple of days in spring. The Japanese celebrate that time of the year with hanami (cherry blossom viewing) parties under the blooming trees. There are lot of different types of cherry blossoms, and they are well-known for having the inability to produce fruits unlike most plants. In Japan, Cherry Blossoms are a representation of clouds, and they are widely popular because of their beauty and shot-term lifespan which has a connection with mortality in the humans. Due to this, they are used in various Japanese arts such as paintings, Japanese comics (also known as Mangas) and Japanese cartoon (anime).
