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 – Juniper Ittogawa January 2013
Chris’s Juniper Ittogawa had been exhibited at our last Newstead Exhibition and had been extremely well received by visitors. It just looked so natural in this landscape setting surrounded by rocks and moss.
The tree had been brought along to a workshop for wiring and placement of the branches. A heavy branch near the crown was removed. Notice how precise and detailed the wiring is even on a small tree like this one.
Once the branches are positioned the tree looks much more compact and refined.
