This is the beginning of something good…. “Dancing Peacocks” is known for its HUGE fan shaped foliage and incredible fall colors— So, here it is! Leaves have reduced about eighty percent in size, to become proportional to the lovely somewhat elongated branching structure of this cultivar in miniature. No short internodes here— just the dramatic and spare interplay between space, light and form. She is one of the most graceful dancers in the garden when her leaves flash in the breeze and sunlight of a perfect fall day. Paired with a refined porcelain circle with subtle intersections of rose overglaze by New England artist Will Talbot of Bell Hill Pottery studio. Will normally makes only tea ware in the Japanese aesthetic of high-fired porcelain, but he accepted a commission from me for a few pieces to give homes to special trees. The result is elegance and understatement as this debutante makes her debut.
