The gnarled, cracked deadwood tells this old olives story. Yixing pot.
The masive old trunk with its bumps and crack that tell an ancient story, captures our eye; but what about the fine branching on such a small tree? This type of refinement that is often overshadowed by thick trunks and dramatic deadwood, also tells a story; a story of time put in triming and wiring and waiting for new shoots to grow.
