Flame forged bonsai...

Post  appalachianOwl on Sun Dec 21, 2014 7:07 pm

Thought would share a bit with yall. Before deciding to back to school for horticulture, i had been a flame-working artist for about 5-6 years. Was not sure where to put this on the forum, hope this is the right spot.

We'll start with the "trunk"...

Twist that thang up....

Add the "low branch"....

Noticed a bit of inverse taper, lets heat her back up and fix that...

That's better...

"Foliage" time....

Finish "growing foliage" and put some feet on the pot, now 2-3 hours of annealing...

Cooled down and ready for display....



Will post more, when and if, i have time to make any more over winter break. Hope yall enjoy...

This was the right place.

That was quite a transition from he "trunk" to the finished tree. Nice job.

Thanks for sharing. I especially like the transition photos. And please share some other creations, who knows maybe there is even a market for them.

Hey wow, appreciate all the kind words yall! As for a market for these, i can't seem to make them fast enough! Wasn't tryin to plug myself at all, very very little time for this anymore, but if not against the rules one could send a PM and could get to you over the next year. Unfortunately though my setup is not mobile. I am trying to find a studio near where i am at school where could do some work; but honestly from my experience in the past if i do no one takes ventilation as serious as i do, i like to breath. Really thanks again for your kind words, means a lot from my bonsai friends!
