workshop shimpaku (Kishu?)

Post  MrFancyPlants on Fri Jun 05, 2015 9:46 pm

This was my draw from a from a workshop at the arboretum 4 or so years ago.  I remember being pretty disappointed with what was left when my number was drawn, but it has grown on me (pun intended).  During the workshop we bent a big bow shape into the long straight section and then carefully arranges all of the branches that were to later be removed as sacrifice growth.  I was careful to preserve the growth closest to base of the tree in order to encourage taper and to leave options open in the future.  During a workshop with Roy Nagatoshi this spring, while I was repotting my Tsuga from the other thread. I let Roy do his thing with the top of this tree and then positioned it in the new pot which I picked up while in Brasil for a wedding in Feb.  I got a whole stack of pots while I was visiting the site of the kiln of Shugo Izumi; The prices were very good given the current exchange rate, and I enjoyed the style/texture of this one in particular.  Roy said that this pot was way too big, but that it would do for training.  I know that generally you cut a tree down to the right sized pot, but I think that it will eventually grow to fit the pot after a year or ten.
