Looking back….we can tell a tree’s story…..admire an image…..capture a moment…..remember a special event…..be inspired – to create a memory for tomorrow. I hope you enjoy this regular peep into some of John’s bonsai history.
Memory Lane – 2012…..Salvaging a rock!
Unfortunately this root over rock Trident Maple didn’t make it through the winter. It was a case of salvaging what we could and trying to create a new tree.
The dead tree and it’s exposed roots had to be removed from the rock…..no easy feat I might add! We were left with an amazing piece of Japanese Ibigawa rock.
The student selected some small trees which were given their first styling and arranged on the rock planted with Keto. We can never replace the splendid Trident that once adorned this rock but at least we have salvaged something………a new creation to develop and enjoy!
