Artist and bonsai enthusiast Ken To started making sculptures of bonsai trees from wire as a way to hone his bonsai styling skills, and they’ve come out so well that they’ve caught the eye of other bonsai collectors.

Ken’s sculptures standout because they strictly adhere to the principles of bonsai aesthetics and convey a continuous sense of movement throughout each piece. Every piece is painstakingly shaped by hand resulting in a unique and original piece every time.
