new pot for big trident maple

Horst Heinzlreiter gave me this pot last August. I think it is perfect for the big trident.

Dear Walter,

It is remarkable how a change of pot can alter the way in which one views a tree, the whole composition is more stable and peaceful, yet this pot has harder lines than the former pot... I like the former pot more yet the whole composition is greatly improved. Have you rotated the tree clockwise to present a slightly new front also? I like the change very much!

Matt, good eye; I have rotated the tree one hour clockwise. This shows the kink in the trunk better and makes it more interesting.

You changed the pot? Why?
I think the previous pot was perfect and this one is just (sorry for the expression) shity. And the change of front makes no sense for me either.
