by Peter Warren, England

Bonsai artist and author, Peter Warren, travels the world sharing his bonsai knowledge and skills. The large collected Eastern white cedar bonsai for his

demonstration was originally designed by Marc Noelanders from Belgium at the 1997 BCI Convention in Toronto, Canada. Unable to take the bonsai back to Belgium, Reiner Goebel purchased the tree and trained ituntil the tree was auctioned at the 2000 ABS Convention. Since then it has been at the International Bonsai Arboretum. Mr. Warren will trim and wire the bonsai with the assistance of award winning bonsai artist and Eastern white cedar specialist Marc Arpag. The newly refined large size Eastern white cedar bonsai will be auctioned at the conclusion of the demonstration on Sunday afternoon at 4 pm.
