my very first yamadori

Post  waway on Tue Oct 20, 2009 3:56 pm

Hi guys.

I just had my first bonsai hunting experience and share to you my very first yamadori, a pemphis acidula. Maybe I don't yet have the "eye" for bonsai, a potential material that is, but I like these materials I hope you like it too.

I need your comments, suggestions, advice and anything to do with these trees, especially on the care aspect as I don't really have first hand experience with trees fresh from the wild. And also any initial styling suggestion would be very much appreciated.

Thanks a bunch.

Warren

And here are the pictures...

Fresh from the wild.


In its training pot. I made some initial cleaning.

These are nice materials, its hard to find pemphis with good base .

I suppose these materials came from the visayas?

@will
I was thinking of a "father-son" style (I'm assuming this is the same as twin trunk). Is it too far away for that style? And the other one is more or less a mushroom-like canopy tree with deadwood protuding above the canopy. And I also want to learn some woodworking (creating deadwood effect).

@cram
You got very nice ideas. I will give this a consideration when I will have its branches and foliage. Thank you.

@pabling
Yes this came from visayas but not much to choose from. I was so lucky to have found these materials.

Still need some suggestions for the clean up operation.

Thank you.

Thanks Mario. I hope I can carve as good as you. By the way, very nice wood carving on the tamed and wild. Its like a pack of wolves coming out of the tree.
