“Why on the planet did you choose ‘Crataegus’ Bonsai?”

I obtain this concern a whole lot. As well as the solution includes a tale.

Well, a three-part tale.

The initial as well as most convenient component of the tale is that “Crataegus” is the category name of the hawthorn tree, which is my surname in German. Years ago I was waffling regarding for a company name. This was way back when I made pots, as well as I desired something that had not been Japanese, as my ceramic job had not been constantly typical (throughout the years neither has actually been my bonsai job, for that issue). The challenging component is articulating it, as the punctuation of it incorporates the “a” as well as the “e” right into a compressed with each other “ae,” which originates from Latin. I’m informed the enunciation is a mix of both noises– as well as any kind of linguist that can lead us to tongue it right rates to comment.



The 2nd component of the tale is that I really did not assume the globe of hawthorn as bonsai as well as really did not desire individuals to assume they cluttered my backyard. I assume there are 2 out in back.

The 3rd component is enlightening, as well as extra daring, as well as what secured the name for me. A man from New York City when I was in Japan I had a poet close friend. Among my couple of English-speaking pals in the town where I apprenticed. We were being in the coffee shop where my partner functioned, speaking about households. I associated one story of my family members that in 1980 remained in Germany on the search for our family members crest. We discovered it finally in a church someplace in the north. The crest was divided right into 4 quadrants. One was a regular layer of arms kind of point, a guard as well as a couple of tools, and so on. An additional quadrant made us laugh, as it was a beehive, as well as my dad had actually paid his method with university with 25 hives as well as later on came to be an entomologist– our laughs had a high, anxious ring to them. The 4th quadrant, I informed my poet close friend, was a photo of a tiny tree, probably a hawthorn. Certainly he understood I was a bonsai pupil, as well as he took a look at me soberly as well as claimed, “There actually is no free choice, exists?”

This is why I picked Crataegus as my service name.

I have actually considering that been informed that my memory of the crest is damaged. As well as that the tale is. It is, anyway, the tale that caused business name.
