Congratulations to the many contributors to the exhibit. Thanks for sharing it on IBC, John. Are bonsai from you illustrated on the thread?

Chris, for the first time in several years I did not have a tree on display. I have been somewhat preoccupied with work (and cycling) this year and it just didn't happen. It was nice to see Felix there.

I thought I would share some pics in addition to Jim and John. There were some amazing trees, and it was great to see everybody share their pieces.

My personal fav, a trident root over rock. I believe Nick Lenz pot.


Bald cypress


Juniper


Hinoki Cypress


Shimpaku


Japanese Maple. It's hard to tell from the picture, but amazing nebari.


Trident Maple


Bald Cypress


Playing with an effect

I believe that Trident Root over rock isn't just a Nick Lenz pot but also a Nick Lenz tree, at least it is pictured in his collecting from the wild book.

I believe that was said at the critique. I thought I heard somebody say something about growing multiple trident on the rock to get that fused root look. I could be wrong though.

Awesome Maple!!!
Hi Austin,
Is that book different than Nick's "Bonsai from the Wild"? I looked through this one and there are no maples in it.
Thanks,
Todd

As I understood it, it is a Lenz tree, and that would include what looks to be the rock which is actually ceramic and not stone at all.

That was, once, I'm told, a Nick Lenz tree. It looks very like one of the trees illustrated in his book.
