Biographical Information: Don Gould produced bonsai pots back in the 1990’s and, after a short break, returned to making pots several years later. Unfortunately he passed away in 2006, but his pottery lives on in many collections. His study of ancient Chinese and Japanese ceramics is evident in his pottery construction and glazing techniques. Don’s pots often have interesting glazes and textures and tend to be heavy. During his second “phase” of making bonsai pots he employed computer-generated design techniques to produce more uniform pots. Don’s pots can be easily identified by the centrally-located keystone shape drain hole.
