Mr. Iker,
My order arrived today, in perfect condition. The pots are, without exception, exquisite.
Thank you for the speedy delivery. I could not be more pleased.
Come spring, I have a scarlet-blooming weigela cascade, with a descending limb that is about 22" long. I think it will call for something not necessarily huge on top, but deep-ish. If perchance' you happen to be inspired to make something that might be a fit, or might want to make something to that purpose, I'd love to have a conversation about it.
I have a pal on the bonsainut forum, in Illinois, named Carol. She told me about your work, and gave you the strongest possible recommendation. She was right.
Cordially,
Rick W., Milwaukee, Wisconsin 
 
 
Hello Chuck,
The pots I ordered from you arrived safely today. They are absolutely wonderful, I am very happy about this order, and will certainly make another order soon.
Thank you so much,
Anne-Christine B., Canada
 
Chuck,
Received my bonsai scoop last week, and like all of the other Iker bonsai pots I have purchased from you, I am, once again, very pleased!!  The craftsmanship is, as always, top notch !  The pot sits perfect on a flat surface without any wobble or weeble , no matter how you arrange the weight of the soil/rocks. Repotted my Fukien Tea from generic to the Iker scoop, and let me tell you, it got one of those big WOW's from my wife !!!  Thought you might enjoy seeing a photo of the finished product.  Chuck, once again, great packaging, fast shipping, and variety of pots to choose from.  Always a pleasure doing business with you !

Thanks again,
Frank A.  Wilmington, DE.
 
 
Mr Iker,
I am fairly new to Bonsai.  I just received my pot order this morning and am so happy with the pots. Now I can see the difference between cheap and handmade pots.  Wasn't sure I was getting that before.  These are much more substantial than the lightweight pots I ordered off ebay.  I also appreciate your advice on sizing. 
 
Thanks again,
Samantha G. Colorado Springs  
 
 
Chuck,
Received my (6) pots last week. Very fast shipping, the best packaging ever, and as always the craftsmanship is excellent. The photos are great, but nothing beats actually holding the pot in your hand, and admiring the design, beauty, and feeling that went into each pot. In my minds eye, I had the vision of which bonsai was going to go into each pot. Let me say this; the pots are eye catching, but when you pair it up with the selected bonsai, the combination becomes a work of art, each complimenting the other. Like putting just the right frame around a photo, or painting. I really get some big "WOW's" from family, and friends ! They all pick their favorite. I think since last summer I purchased approx. a dozen Iker pots. As soon as we get some continuous good weather so that I can finish landscaping the bonsai, I will send you some photos. Chuck, thanks for keeping a great selection of pots in stock. IMO, its hard to beat the selection, and competitive pricing that Iker Bonsai Pots has to offer. Thanks again Chuck, not only for the quality, but also for the service you offer the customer.
A very satisfied, and return customer !
Frank A. Wilmington, DE
 
Chuck, received my pot today (5" primitive square) and am quite pleased. Looks better in person than on the site. I'm a true novice to bonsai and hope my tree does that pot some justice. Looking forward to dealing with you again in the future. Thanks!
Jim B., Ohio
 
Chuck,
Received my pots on Monday. Again I was very pleased with the beautiful well made pots! As usual the packaging was the best !! Could have been air dropped without any breakage !! Over the past year I surfed many, many bonsai pot sites. IMO, Iker's is the best site I have found. Excellent photos of top quality pots showing many positions with easy enlargement, excellent choice of sizes, designs, unglazed/glazed, primitive, and best of all very competitive pricing. If you are in the market for bonsai pots, and you come across Iker's Bonsai Pottery, look no further. This is the place you will find your pot, and if you don't see it, just ask, and Chuck I'm sure will be more than willing too help you.  
Thanks again Chuck. Can't say enough about your product, and service.
A very satisfied, and return customer,
Frank A., Wilmington, DE
 
 
My order arrived today and I was very impressed with your workmanship.  You are a skilled potter.  I've been taking classes for over a year now and realize how much technique is in these pots.  Hope to get there someday myself, till then I'll use your pots as inspiration!
 
Thanks! My husband loved it. 
 
Vanessa P., Marathon Key, Florida
 
Hi Chuck,
I got the pot today and it is fantastic. Thanks for the great pot and the great service. I will probably be contacting you again before long to see about more pots.
 
Thanks, Jim L. Wyoming
 

Had a wonderful surprise on Christmas morning!! Received (7) Iker bonsai pots from my family and friends !! I believe my wife ordered them for the ones who gave. I have been growing bonsai for many years, and have been using "generic" type pots from our local nursery who has a small bonsai section. After my first purchase from you last summer, I decided to start repotting my bonsai into beautiful, artistic, and original bonsai pots, so I asked that to be one of my gifts. What a lucky guy I am !! The pots are top notch, and will be a great improvement in the presentation of the bonsai trees. It will take some work, but when they are complete, I will send you some pics. Keep up the excellent work.

A very satisfied customer !!

Frank, Deleware

 

I received my order yesterday, Couldn't be happier.  Can't wait until Spring to get busy potting these up.  Thanks again!

Ralph, Los Angeles, CA 

 

Hey Chuck , Order arrived perfectly as usual.  Great packing job.  Love the pots!

Malique, Arizona

Wanted to let you know that I received my order and am very impressed with the pots and the care you take on the details.  I take pottery classes and took your pot in to share with the class.  My instructor used your pot as an example of working on the small details and the skill you possess for trimming the bottom of the pot.  She was very impressed and I can't wait to get the pots planted.  Thanks!!

Carol, B,  Maine

Hi Chuck,  Just letting you know I've received my pots last week some time. I was expecting good quality but what I received was just excellent, much more than I anticipated. Very glad with the purchase. Will definitely buy again at a later stage. Thanks again.

Just got the Privets repotted in the new pots I got from you on Friday.  They are just perfect.  Thanks again, Chuck.  I appreciate you working with me to get what I wanted.  Didn't think I'd ever get the color and shape I was after.  As Arnold says... I'll be back !

Bobby, Alabama

 

Mr Iker,

I am so happy with the pot you made me.  It goes perfectly with the Plum we made it for. Sorry to be so particular with it and I really appreciate your efforts to give me what I wanted.  My club was impressed with the pot and I'm sure you will be getting more orders from them.  

Wei, Texas

 

I received two beautiful Bonsai Pots for Christmas.   Couldn't wait to see you website and see what else you offer.  Awesome! Not sure how I've missed your site but I love the two I received and will be placing orders for a few more I can't resists.  Thank you!!

Lucy, Washington 

 

Arrived perfect again!
These are excellent!
Have a happy holiday season! Thanks,

Mike, Indiana

 

Dear Chuck

Received the pot yesterday, what a beauty ! That primitive finish you gave it is wonderful. A lot of “sabi” you put into it indeed ! I’m eager to plant in it the tree it was intended for (Conocarpus Erecta). The (very well protected) package made its way to Martinique through Miami (where it arrived as soon as oct. 16th) in turn to Paris on oct. 27th (due to French transport routes…) I encourage you to keep on with that primitive finish of yours !

My order arrived this afternoon. Really nice pots. I have couple of Tropicals I'll repot not and the rest will have to wait till spring.  Thanks again, excellent packaging.  Not a scratch! You will be hearing from me again!

Tracy, Michigan

 

I received the pot today. It is beautiful. The inside bottom is correct for drainage which isn't always easy to find.

All I can say is excellent workman ship. Also your delivery time is great. 

Alden, North Carolina

 

Thanks so mush for the custom pot you made for me.  It's a perfect size and the colors will go well with my trident maple.  Will send some pictures when I get it potted.  Thanks again.  

Bob, California

 

I just received my first order and I love the pots.  Even better than the pictures! I have taken some pottery classes and I can appreciate the detail you put in to your work.  Beautiful.

I received my order today. Pots were packed very well and received in perfect condition. I would just like to thank you the pots a beautiful, even nicer than shown on your website. The pots should be perfect for trees that are going in them.
Thank You Very Much
Tom M. Michigan

Hi Chuck, I forgot to tell you that I received your pot a couple of days ago and it looks amazing. You make THE BEST crescents hands down of any potter in North America or Europe for that matter. It's got that earthy, amber, burnished look that compliments conifers perfectly.

 Thanks, David B. Canada

Another beautiful pot Chuck, love the colour, texture and that earthy clay smell just can't be beat at this time of the year, how I look forward to being able to smell the earth again after all this white stuff and ice has gone!! I really enjoy looking at all the new pots you are cooking up, wonderfully diverse!

 P.S. Kudos to the pot wrapper, what a fantastic job!

Sue, Ontario Canada

Hey, Chuck.
Received my pot today and it's gorgeous.
Can't wait for Spring to get my Fukien Tea in there.
I'll be ordering a piece from you again soon...possibly a custom one.
Thanks for the quality work, speedy service and great price!
Worth every penny.
Be well.
Eric, New Jersey

My pot arrived today, that was super fast shipping by FedEx! What a great packing job too. Your pot is exquisite, beautiful work, I just love the look of the broken glaze, it looks so earthy and bark like, I can't wait to repot the spruce into it in the spring! Thank you so very much.

Sue, Canada

Got the new pots and I am incredibly happy once again, your work is superb!  I am going to use that maroon one on one of my boxwoods, I held it up to it and it is going to look fantastic.

Ronnie, Illinois

I just unwrapped my two new pots from you. I just wanted to tell you they are absolutely wonderful. I have been doing bonsai for 30 years and have purchased pots from all around the world. The creativity and quality of your pots are superb.
Thanks Michael, Alabama

My order came yesterday.  Can't wait till potting season.  Your pictures dont do your pots justice. Thanks

Terry, Texas 

Chuck,  The pots arrived safe and sound this afternoon.  I am very pleased with them.  Excellent craftsmanship and excellent packing.  FedEx could have dropped them from the plane.

Best always,
Kirk, Georgia

Chuck, I saw your article in Bonsai Clubs International magazine.  I have to say that I am very please with the pots I ordered.  Nice finish, excellent craftsmanship.  Will be back.  Thanks!

Tom, Utah

Mr. Iker, I received my pot I ordered off you two days ago and it came well secured in the box and was beautiful. I was impressed with the fast manner you replied to my email sent late that evening, the next morning !  Your photo at your site was perfect and the pot is wonderful, I love the finish and the quality of your work. I will deal solely with you for any future needs I have in Bonsai pottery.

Ed, Ohio

I am so excited about receiving the pots today that I had to show you how you saved a tree. Also, I LOVE the mame pot!!!! I can't wait until my next sprout is ready to transplant into it. It was so awesome I had to get the 6" pot of similar shape and another 6" green pot. I love how the green glaze complements the green needles. I have attached a before and after picture of the repotted tree.......... 

Karen, Arizona

 

The pot arrived today, and it is absolutely exquisite. Beautiful finish.

Jeff, Florida

Hello Chuck, I got my 2 pots in the mail. Can I just say that I'm more than impressed with their craftsmanship in person! Wow!

Thomas, California

 Chuck, Thanks for the great job you did packing these pots. I was very please with all of them.  I particularly liked the 2 unglazed mames.  I can't wait to get them potted.  Your style is unique.  Your pots are elegant without overpower the composition.  Very nice!

Barb, Arizona

I showed your pots off at our club meeting last night.  Send me some cards.  I think you're going to be getting a few orders.  Love them!
Bob, California

Thank you Chuck.  I received the pots yesterday and they are absolutely gorgeous. Best,

Well Chuck, Just picked up the pots from the post office today and they are absolutely beautiful. Thanks for your flawless packing job and for the artistry applied to all four pots. They will make unique homes for my little trees. Thanks again!

Thanks, Chuck, the pots are really lovely and I appreciate all the care you took in packaging them up for the trip. Your work is amazing. I look forward to potting up some of my special trees in them.

J.B., Canada

Hi Chuck,
I just received my second order and couldn't be happier. The pots arrived in great shape. Your finishes are truly a work of outstanding art.
Thanks so much

M.M. Indiana

Love the pots!

F.W. Washington

Hello Chuck, I just received the pottery and I am stunned by the quality and the art. Those are awesome bonsai pots. I appreciate the fast delivery. Thank you,

M.M., Indiana 

These pots look good without the trees in them.  My wife absconded with the blue cascade for her window garden.  I guess I'll need to buy a replacement.  Thanks Chuck, I'm glad I found your site.

T.R. Georgia

Great job on the packaging and I really love them!  Thanks!!

B.W, Utah

My pots came yesterday.  I was really impressed with them all.  I will be buying more come spring.  Thank you!

U.A. Canada

Mr Iker,

My first order was for a friend’s birthday.  She was very happy by the way.  This order was for me.  While I’m not sure my plants quite qualify as Bonsai, they sure make me happy sitting on the window sill.  I may have to expand out on to the fire walk.  Love your work.

K.S. New York

 

 

……………… Opened the beautifully wrapped box.  You are VERY good.  I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the small textured pot 3703.  God knows what I'm going to put in it but I LOVE it.  I am not a lover of high glaze finishes and that's the truth.  Having said that, the others are beautiful and while the high glaze does bother me [as I knew it would when I ordered them] the pots will suit the trees in mind admirably.  You have done a superb job.  I'm very very pleased……..

 

Chuck, thanks again for your wonderful artistic abilities, your excellent customer relations and your supreme packing skills.  It remains a pleasure dealing with you.

Cheers

L.W., Australia

Attached is a picture of the Black Pine I ordered your pot for.  Perfect.  I could not be happier.  Thanks for all your help!

W.A. Atlanta

Thanks Chuck - got everything today. I have no words for pot 3763. Just gorgeous.... perfect. I collect a lot of eastern white cedars, and I think the finish is perfect for them. Don't be surprised if I start begging you to make me custom pots with this finish!

Best, A.K., Canada

I received my pots yesterday. Just wanted to let you know they arrived in perfect condition and how much I like all of them. I'm looking forward to getting them potted. I can see just how much time and effort you put into every pot you make. I'm very impressed. You'll be hearing from me again!

A.M. California

Thought I'd send you some pictures of the last pots I got from you. The pot I put the black pine in is perfect. How often do you put new pots on your website?

R.N., Vermont

The crescent is awesome! I'm amazed it made it though in one piece. Nice pack job.

L.W., Texas

I can see now this is going to be trouble. I'm going to have to repot a lot of trees after getting these pots. I'd better have you send my next order to my work. My husband is not going to like this. Thanks, Chuck!

B.Q. Arkansas

Thanks Chuck, perfect pots again.

W.R., Michigan

Hey Chuck, the pots arrived in in great condition. Good work as always. Thanks!

Mr Iker, I recieved my package today. I was delighted to open it and see the wonderful pots you made. The workmanship is excellent.
Randy B., Mississippi

Hi Chuck, Got my pots today – very happy ! I think they must be the best finished pots I have ever bought – you have a very good eye for attention to detail. Will be back another time and have told a mate about you and will send him some photos.Thanks for a great job and very good packing as well.
Kathy E., Arizona


Pots were on the porch. Excellent, as always. Thanks, Chuck
Zoe C., Texas

I got two big boxes this afternoon. I didn't realize how big they were going to be. These are exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for being patient with me on this. The color and finish is just what you promised. My client will be very happy. Hope to work with you again soon.
W.J. Georgia
 
Lovely, stunning really, and even more than I could have hoped for. When it comes to bonsai planters this vendor really knows his stuff. If you buy a pot from him you should know that it's going to be the real thing. Impeccable products with fast and safe delivery. In all ways an excellent shopping experience on Etsy. Thank you
R. B. New Mexico

Thank you so much! My husband loved it for Valentine's Day. Will look beautiful with his Chinese Wisteria in it. Great packaging, fast shipping! Would by from again!
S.H. Connecticut

I couldn't have been more pleased. I look forward to getting it potted. Thanks, Chuck

B.H. Michigan

LOVE the pots!, hope you're not offended me using a few of them for non-bonsai planting in the greenhouse. I just couldn't resist. 
A.W. South Dakota

Chuck-great purchase, thanks as its a beautiful pot. I will be back. 
C.H., Virginia

Received the pots today, Awesome! Great packaging, great pots! 
B.S. Georgia

Chuck, I just wanted to thank you for all of the lovely pots you helped me get together on such short notice. They look wonderful in the restaurant and really finish off the decor. We're looking forward to this week's opening and you have a standing invitation for a free dinner. Again, thanks, your work is simply beautiful. 
A.D. Utah

The pot just arrived and it is outstanding. Your packing technique is phenomenal. I can hardly wait to get the pine planted in it. It is so cold here now that we should be able to start re-potting in a couple of weeks………………. Thanks again for a wonderful transaction. I'll be ordering more things in the near future. Wish you were close enough to do a program for our club....I'll bet it would be fascinating. 
K.K. Florida

Another very handsome planter from a very talented potter! This makes my third purchase from Chuck and his work does not disappoint. Exemplary workmanship; even the bottom of the pot is beautifully finished! Fast shipping, wrapped in layers of bubble-wrap and sent in a box filled to capacity with peanuts. Highly recommend this shop and seller! Thank you! 
B.P., Arizona

Hi Chuck, Received the pots today in great condition. Very nice! Especially the large grey round one with cracks in the finish. It is very impressive. Could you let me know how that was done? I expect I will hear that question a lot once I put a tree into that pot. 
H.S. Wisconsin

Hello, I received the three pots today. They are all exquisitely beautiful. Thank you. 
J.Q. California

Mr Iker, The pots arrived in perfect condition. Excellent packaging job. I am anxious to re-pot. Do you have any other pots like the shallow matte green pot I purchased? I have another crabapple that would look perfect in it but I need one a little larger, may another 2 inches in diameter. Thanks again!
B.M., Washington

Dear sir, Very pleased with the yellow round pot #2440 I received yesterday ; particularly delighted with the bonus little round pot you added to my order, a very decent gesture of yours !
G.D.,Fort de France, Martinique

HI Chuck, I've just picked up the pot from the post office, it's in perfect condition. It really is a beautiful and unique piece, I love the texture, the color, the shape... and of very high quality! I've become a fan of your work. :) Thanks a lot! Kind regards,
P. A. Portugal

I received my 2 beautiful pots! I was so excited I potted one up immediately. I cannot stop staring at them. Your work is exquisite and I will order again. Best regards
D.D. South Carolina

My pots arrived in good condition. Now I see how you manage to ship pottery. Sure do like this matte blue glaze, any chance you'll be doing any more like that soon? I'd like one for a friend for Christmas. 
A.Q. Nova Scotia

My Order arrived this morning. I just wanted to let you know that I am very pleased with my purchase. Your attention to detail is obvious and I look forward to getting these trees repotted so that I can order some more. I also appreciate the quick shipping and good packaging. 
L.H. Arizona

................I recently purchased two pots from you and was wondering if you'd be willing to share how in the heck you trim the bottoms of your pots so cleanly. I've been taking pottery classes for several years and have always just wired the the pot off the bat and cleaned it up with a rib. I know how to use trimming tools but how do you hold the pot for that amount of clay removal and how do you keep them from cracking? Not sure if you're willing to share but it's driving me crazy! By the way, your pots are just lovely.............. 
A.W. California

Hello Chuck, A word to let you know that the bonsai pots have arrived safely. Thanks so much. Love them! shall be ordering some more. Best,
G.J. Alabama

I received my pots today and was very pleased with the quality of your work. I will be back!
A.G. Hawaii

Hi Chuck, The pot you sent was just the right size, color, and design. I like the way you extended the colorful glaze inside the pot giving it a finished look. The slender design is beautiful as well as functional since it is much easier to hold the pot. I am glad I got this one. Thanks.
G.G. Connecticut

My order arrived this morning and I’m anxious to get my plants repotted. I’ve already had two guests ask me where I got them. I really appreciate how quickly you got them to me. 
E.M. Puerto Rico

Great pots, as always. Thanks Chuck.
R.M. Maine

I received my order yesterday and I just wanted to let you know that I am really happy with my purchase. The slate blue pots are just magnificent. The finish has color but it is soft and matte. They will go excellent with the crabapples I am going to put in them. Thanks again!
L.H. Kansas

I received the pots to day and they are horrible, they will become an addiction! Seriously they are as beautiful as I expected and you can be sure you will see more business from me.Thanks,

J.K., Illinois

Received the pots today. Love them! Thanks!
B.M. Maine

Hi, Chuck....WOW!!!!! the pots arrived today and they are beautiful!!! Would you happen to have a larger size of the coppery yellow pot? I would like a cascade style but don't remember seeing one in that section. Even just a larger size would be fine.....Thanks!!!
D.M. Pennsylvania

Hi Chuck, I took a few of the pots I bought from you in January to our club meeting last night. Everyone was very interested in getting your contact information. I replanted a Black Pine in the raw clay pot I bought and it drew a lot of attention. Thanks! 
A.C. New York

I got my order Monday and have repotted the azalea I told you about. I'll attach a picture. I'm very happy with how it turned out and all of the pots I bought. You'll be hearing from me again soon.
B.B. Ohio

Hi Chuck, I received the pots today and they are beatiful, we are very pleased. I will tell my friends at our next repot workshop.Thank you,
J.R., Wisconsin

I received my order today and am very pleased. I may need another like this cream colored pot. Do you have one in around a 8" diameter or could you make me one? Very Nice Pots.

I got my pots Wednesday. Great as usual. As soon as I get these potted up I'll send you some pictures. The raw clay pot will work perfectly with the Black Pine I sent you a picture of.

Hi Chuck. I got the pot yesterday in fine shape. Very nice pot. I'm planning to put a 32 years old, semi-cascading schefflera in it next spring. I'll send you a picture when it's done.

I got the pot's today and as always they are wonderful. I love the cascading pot with the great multi colored glazes running down the sides. That's what I like about your pieces. You like to try different things, Texture and different colors that blend and create other colors.......

Shipment arrived today with no issues. Super job of packing! ….The pots are beautiful. I especially like the 2413 pot. The pictures on your website are great but in person the colors and character are spectacular. I don’t know if I have a tree that will do this pot justice?

I AM VERY PROUD OF THE TWO POTS I HAVE ACQUIRED FROM YOU AND AM LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING PLENTY MORE IN THE NEAR FUTURE. I WOULD LIKE TO GO AHEAD AND GET THAT OTHER RECTANGLE POT WITH THE SAGGING WHITISH GLAZE GOING DOWN IT. I WAS BEAUTIFUL. THANKS AGAIN.
