Top 10 Creative and Unusual Bonsai Trees



Over the years of my life, I have tried to do as many different things as I could. From trying all sorts of foods from around the World to trying most sorts of sport and hobbies, I even joined a knitting class once, just to say I had tried it. Something I did try once is the art of Chinese penjing (or Bonsai as it is currently known) and I loved it! But only for a while as I got bored rather quickly because these trees are like a baby, they need constant attention and caring. But maybe I would enjoy one of these a lot more…

10 – Tree Flavoured Popsicle.

This amazing example of ‘botanical art’ by Makoto Azuma really is quite impressive indeed. There was this one you see above and another bonsai tree that didn’t quite make it into my top 10 that has been suspended by wires!

9 – Crash Test Tree

Now this is clever. What you are looking at is, in fact, a toy car! Called ‘CrashBonsai’ it is the work of an amazing John Rooney an artist that makes amazing images of car crashes with trees, but all done with toy cars and bonsai trees!

8 – The Scuba Diving Tree

It seems Makoto Azuma (from image 10) is at it again, but this time with a rather amazing underwater bonsai tree! It was made to show people the natural flow of the tree and how the air it breathes is solely down to the vines that grow into the ground rather than the leaves at the ends of the plant. Weird yes, but also kind of cool.

7 – The Tree Charger

What you are looking at above is, in fact, a solar-powered phone charger that is shaped like a bonsai tree! It was going to be mass-produced but sadly failed to get backing which is a real shame because I think it is a thing a pure beauty.

6 – Tiny, tiny, tiny trees!

As if a bonsai tree wasn’t small enough, this Japanese maple tree has been described as the Worlds smallest Bonsai tree and I wouldn’t disagree with that, it’s microscopic!

5 – The Mountain View

The incredible slanting Juniper bonsai tree is inspired by a Japanese mountainside and was made by Peter Ebensperger.

4 – Is that tree wired?!?

These tiny bonsai trees are in fact made with copper wire and the work of the incredibly talented artist Ken To. And best of all is if you have a few hundred pounds going spare you can, in fact, buy one!

3 – The Worlds Smallest Tree House

You are looking at the mind-blowing work of artist Takanori Aiba because he makes these amazing bonsai ‘dioramas’  that are all made to look like tree houses that are fit for an emperor. The detail is nothing short of jaw dropping and they are well worth checking out.

2 – Bonsai trees are not toys! ..but this one on the other hand is a whole different story!

For this rather unusual bonsai tree, we welcome back Makoto Azuma (as seen in post 10&8)  because once again we are seeing what is supposed to represent how the building block of a normal bonsai tree can’t really be seen until we as close as we can be to them.

1 – The Lord of the Trees.

It just doesn’t get any better than this amazing bonsai tree inspired by the Lord of the Rings set design of Bilbo Baggins’ house! The little wooden picket fence just finishes it off beautifully and a real showcase of what a true Bonsai master can achieve.
