It’s been awhile since I have posted but I have been enjoying reading everyone’s post. It’s hard to slow down during the winter months while the bonsai are sleeping.
However, I have been staying busy. Trying to gain knowledge, reading about techniques and working on bonsai display stands.
Here are the ones that I have and am still working on recently.
The one on the left is much less traditional. I tried to replicate a vintage factory cart. It has been hard to find small parts to mimic the much larger versions. I think it might look interesting with a rugged yamadori spruce or pine. What do you think?
A NEW CHAPTER 7-15-2014
Early this spring I was made aware of a juniper on craigslist that someone needed removed.
(You can read about this juniper here https://greatdividebonsai.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=52&action=edit)
I had high hopes for this juniper but in the back of my mind I knew there was a slim chance of it making it. Still, the trunks had awesome movement and great twists. After it’s official Time Of Death was recorded, I focused on the bark and trunk. removing the bark revield years of creepy crawlies and infestation. The two trunk lines were cut away for future use and the base of the trunk will make an interesting display stand.
Next on the chopping block will be this larger half of the juniper.
