Topical Times – Ian’s Juniper is finally styled
On a workshop last weekend I finally got round to styling Ian’s Juniper. It came out of the ground 12 months ago and basically had been allowed to grow freely this year.
Some initial pruning had been carried out to remove unwanted branches and encourage the tree to grow in the areas we wanted to use. Another thinning out had been made prior to wiring.
The tree had returned to the studio this week fully wired and with some refined deadwood. The initial styling was then carried out.
This tree has come a long way in twelve months and with those heavy low branches giving an imposing sense of maturity/age this is a tree to watch out for!
