Why Do we Use Styles?

There are several reasons for identifying a bonsai by a named style:

  • Naming a style provides a graphic description of the tree.
  • When one person is talking to another about a bonsai and identifies its style, a mental-visual image of that style is evoked in the mind of the listener.
  • A style provides a direction of purpose when structuring a bonsai.
  • It is a shortcut to understanding.

Cascade Styles
  • A cascade style bonsai is one in which a major feature extends below the lower rim of the pot.
  • A semi-cascade style bonsai is one in which the major cascading feature extends below the top rim of the pot but does not extend below the bottom of the pot.
  • What determines whether a cascade or semi-cascade is Formal or Informal is the part above the rim of the pot.
  • It depicts a tree in nature growing on a mountain top with all or a part of it hanging over the edge.
  • The container should be relatively deep and may be round, square, octagonal, hexagonal, or a deep cascade.
  • The container may be glazed or unglazed depending on the species of tree.
