Itoigawa--project

Post  quatrefi on Wed Oct 17, 2012 1:16 pm

Hello here's a juniperus itoïgawa.
I bought it last fall, did repot it (changing is angle) and did cut off a lot of foliage.
Here are some pic and two drawings i did.
Tell me what you think of the project (i'm not quite sure of it, i think it's not enough complicated)
Thanks
JF

Nice find!

So this would be the front:



It will be a beautiful tree someday soon, I suspect.

Hello, i started the shaping, it's not finished yet but it did inspire me for a new project.

Beautiful piece of material, love it!

You have some really nice options with this.

What a great trunk. Very strong potential tree. I wouldn't rush and watch the tree for some more time.

Hello thanks for your answers, i did watch it a lot and finally did this new project, and this shaping.

The second picture is an alternate possibility.

I see a problem with this design that I don't know whether you have noticed. I assume that the angle you have the pot reflects what the actual horizon position is going to be. If you draw a line across the base that is horizontal to your design two problems present themselves immediately: One, you will lose the appearance of stability at the base where the tree plunges into the ground. That portion of the trunk is substantially smaller than the mass above it which now, where the soil mass has not yet been reduced, serves to give the illusion of the tree anchored in the ground with this massive, coiled trunk. When the soil mass is reduced to reflect your planted angle that small portion of the trunk will be the visual anchor to a rather large coiled trunk suspended above it. Two, the branch you have styled down on the left will be sitting on the ground. Solution: Plant the tree using the new planted angle deep enough that the coiled trunk sets on the soil surface.

Cockroach--thanks

Vance-I don't think it should be a big problem, the base seems smaller on this picture but it is not, it is even a little bit larger than the rest of the trunk, i admit there's a portion of the trunk we don't know yet and that could be a bad surprise particularly with the angle this portion of the trunk has, we'll see. Your solution could solve the problem too. For the branch it can be raised easily.
Thanks. JF

The tree looks very good, far better than I saw it.
