Wind and Fire

Post  darky on Tue Feb 25, 2014 5:35 am



We are often asked here in Australia to create an Australian style. My thoughts are like a lot of other growers, is that if you call it some thing else, then it is something else, and not Bonsai or Penjing. However we can create a scene that is typical of the Australian country side.

I created this scene of the after a fire was swept though by strong wind.
The tree is a native Melaleuca linophylla sbp planted in a Patrick Kennedy pot Australian.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Regards Darky

Hi Darky

This is a new and refreshing way to show a bonsai from your country...it is a very believeable style...the bushfirestyle.
Love the pot...Thanks for sharing...look forward to see more  Smile 

Kind regards Yvonne

I like it - it tells a story and that is important in my opinion.

I have never subscribed to the notion that we can't create new styles under the banner of bonsai. It's a miniaturised styled tree in a pot/container - therefore it's a bonsai IMHO. If we're going to be stuck with a handful of styles or forms just because they are "historical " or "traditional", then we have a very impoverished hobby, craft, art form or whatever you want to call it.
