Meet Jack Hoover, a true artisan in the world of bonsai. In 1997, Jack embarked on a creative journey by acquiring a potter's wheel and kiln, marking the beginning of his remarkable foray into crafting bonsai pots. Since then, his talent has not gone unnoticed – Jack has garnered multiple awards in collaboration with local nurseries and clubs, showcasing the exceptional quality and artistry of his creations.
Beyond his success in competitions, Jack generously shares his expertise through lectures on bonsai, bonsai carving, styling, and the art of crafting pots. We consider ourselves fortunate to have Jack periodically visit New England Bonsai Gardens. His most recent appearance was during the 2022 Members Weekend, where his pots took center stage in a workshop demo, and we were quick to acquire all he brought.
If you've never had the pleasure of owning a Jack Hoover pot, you're truly missing out. Each piece reflects not only his skill but also a passion for the art of bonsai. Keep an eye out for future visits from Jack – an opportunity to add a touch of his artistry to your bonsai collection!
