When selecting the Air Bonsai you have the option of selecting a moss ball or a lava stone, where the moss ball is more suited for plants, and the lava stone is more suited for actual bonsai trees. Each moss ball and lava stone have a sponge inserted into the middle of it to make it easier to plant things in it.
Surely bonsai trees take years and years to grow, but if you’re willing to shell out $1,000 you can get a little star with a bonsai tree already growing in it.
Each porcelain base is meticulously hand crafted and takes around 3 months to finish. The shaped porcelain base is then air dried, which during this process it is inspected for any changes to the design or any defects. The base is then put into a kiln that permanently sets its shape. Using a traditional Japanese hand brush, patterns and designs are put onto the base. Finally to complete the process, the base is glaze fired.
