Mauro Stemberger in Perth, Western Australia

Post  newzealandteatree on Sun Jul 07, 2013 11:48 am

I have the privilege of meeting this young, talented bonsai master with a very refreshing attitude. It was an enjoyable and educational weekend for many. Here are some photos to share. Sorry for the quality of some of the photos. My only regret is we don't have an old yamadori juniper or pine to fully exploit his talent and knowledge.

Another J. Procumbens. The end product is less impressive than the first as Maruo did told us earlier that there is less ramifications on the branches for him to go up the next stage of wiring.

His vision:

Did he happen to explain why he wired the large pieces of dead wood in the back of the tree? I can't imagine they would hold their shape since they can no longer grow/heal in the position they are now in.

My guess is that they were alive when he started and he striped the foliage. They will then keep the wired shape once they dry with a little spring back. It is also possible to soften already dry wood and position into a new shape. Challenging on a bonsai, but commonly done in woodworking by saturating with steam.

Those jins were created from fresh branches. They were wired to position them to fit into his artistic vision. The wires will be removed after the wood dry. harden and hopefully stay in position. Here is another photo showing the original branches which ended up as jins.

Thanks for posting CJ.

Mauro is a great artist, he will be one of our headliners for our next year "International Bonsai Art & Culture Biennale" in Yogyakarta.

Robert, he also told me that. I am sure you can give him materials to fully tap into his enormous skills and experiences. I am looking forward to attend.

Cheers,
CJ
