Toyohaku Suzuki

Bonsai Fine Crafts Artist

born in 1934, Hokkaido, Japan
lives and works in Tokyo, Japan

Toyohaku Suzuki, Bonsai crafts artistHoujo-no-matsu by ToyohakuToyohaku Suzuki was born in Hokkaido in 1934.
When he was a child, he was in poor health and he often enjoyed alone drawing bonsai trees/plants in his house garden. After he moved to Tokyo and started to work as an ordinary office worker, he could not give up his dream of working as an artist. Therefore, in 1984, he finally started to make artificial replica models of bonsai which had not been challenged by anybody in the past.
Even during the period he worked busily as an ordinary office worker, he had continued to admire bonsai trees/plants because he loved bonsai very much. He always felt that it was very difficult in the real bonsai world to make ideal trees/plants without much care and maintenance. This seems to have become a major motivation for making models of bonsai by himself.
Toyohaku Suzuki, Bonsai crafts artist
Since then, over 30 years, the idea "how put out a real texture close to the real bonsai trees/plants" is always in his mind. In his daily work of producing his works, he always says "Trunk texture comes first". He left many masterpieces to decorate the famous hotels' entrance lobbies, city halls and other public spaces. Nowadays, he is widely recognized to be the leading authority in this world of artificial replica bonsai fine crafts. Through repeated trials and errors in adding various improvements to his technique or in the selection of materials, he is still changing even now and continues challenging as a pioneer in this bonsai fine crafts world.
