Spring - Summer displays

Post  Jeremy on Fri May 18, 2012 5:05 pm

Hi,
Had some time today to try out a couple of displays.
First my Box tree with a transitional scroll late spring - early summer + accent.

Blackthorn with iris scroll and accent.



A little challenging in the use of the blackthorn's table I admit, but it's all good experimentation.

This is a minchou hyougu style scroll, which is considered an informal styling, and can be very good for display. At first glance I thought the top sumie were maple leaves, but looking close maybe there are blossoms in the picture...I think...so to me seems to be early spring...but maybe wrong...

Some people prefer earthtones for the kireji (cloth on the scroll) for a bonsai display....But the reason I do not like this cloth is it seems to make the bottom shihon (painting) disappear. Sorry not a better critique of the overall display....

This is not technically a scroll...the word scroll in Japanese is 掛け軸 kakejiku which is something rolled on an axis. This would be called a Tansaku kake This is the most informal picture/scroll type (Sou no Sou) and I think works well. Those Tansaku Kake I have usually seen displayed are hung higher. Do not know if you can move it up higher in the display.

Just some thoughts FWIW...

Kakejiku Thank you for you reply.

I am a work in progress with regards to displaying my trees within a seasonal display. I have gleaned as much info regarding a refined display aesthetic, but other than pictures and a very small number of books in Japanese to guide me, I am limited to my own taste and items I have collected over the years. Any input is greatly appreciated.

blossoms in the picture...I think...so to me seems to be early spring...but maybe wrong...

Yes they are blossoms, I spoke to a Japanese exchange student at my uni. and she suggested it as late spring, but I think you are correct.

But the reason I do not like this cloth is it seems to make the bottom shihon (painting) disappear. Sorry not a better critique of the overall display....

The top blossom picture is a reflective gold, while the lower picture is much more subdued. The exposure might have made the lower picture appear muddy.

Thank you again for your honest reply. I'll keep on learning and enjoying my journey.

Kakejiku,
Yes I can adjust the height. How much higher would you suggest?

Thank you Russell,

I posted this before, back in April, but I am hoping this is a better place to attract further advice.
So, here is another seasonal blackthorn display put together recently.
It alludes to a welsh hedgerow late spring, just incase the seasonal bit is a bit vague. Rolling Eyes



I feel the table is a little heavy and the accent a little visually heavy. Overall i am pleased with this moment I made.

Chris T. tells me he is not sure with the pink on the scroll, but I am secure in my sexuality. Very Happy

wet scroll

Post  Jeremy on Sun May 20, 2012 9:57 pm

Hi,
Had a disaster with my scroll, the night before it became wet without me realising. When I unrolled it at the show The whole length was water stained. affraid Crying or Very sad
I was convinced to hang it hoping it might dry out and improve. I did dry, but not improve. Crying or Very sad

My dampish box display.



Not doubt others will post more from the Exmouth show later.

Hi Jeremy,
Good show wasnt it, i thought it was one of the most relaxed and enjoyable ones I've been to.

Just a theory that may work.....water staining always leaves the darkest and most obvious mark where the damp and dry section meets. how about making the whole scroll evenly damp??? would this 'even out' the visible mark.

very much a theory though. cheers Marcus

I'll have to give it a go, got nothing to lose, it's unusable as is. Will B suggested the same approach.
A few stiff drinks to get me in the mood might help before I commit to it. pale

just another hunch but try neat vodka Very Happy - to soak it with !!!! but then i started looking into it and there are a couple of 'proper' ways to do it

paper restoring

there is a scroll maker on here though I think- he may have a few hints to pass on about restoration and rescue ?

nice pic m8, I really enjoyed the whole day. cheers

Hi Marcus,
He was kind enough to email me and suggested,
.."if you want to apply a wash to the scroll the painting would be better to be removed, washed and remounted into a new scroll...I would never recommend just spraying anything onto a finished scroll to anyone."
"actually a little bit of weathering and wear can sometimes enhance the display, depending on how bad it is."

He did suggest I might consider remounting it, but that is a lot beyond me.
