An event celebrating the beauty of time and the balance of nature

The Artisans Cup is the premier exhibition of American Bonsai, located in the heart of Portland, Oregon.

The time has come for American Bonsai. A steadily growing subset of the millenia-old art form, American Bonsai honors tradition while pushing the artistic boundaries of what is possible. The Artisans Cup is the leading expression of American Bonsai, showcasing the highest level of craftsmanship and skill in an experimental environment that will engage and inspire.

The Artisans Cup will be held at The Portland Art Museum in Portland, Oregon. Our panel of five internationally renowned Bonsai professionals will bestow honor to the top three most innovative and skillfully crafted trees. The event will also feature select artisans and craftsmen who are creating distinctive supporting elements such as ceramics, woodwork, tools, and more.
