Bonsai cliff

Post  jun on Sun Jan 31, 2016 10:08 am

Hi IBC!
Inspired by cliff trees.


Inspiraion


The rocks...



The Initial layout after combining rocks, carving rocks and planting the trees in the crevices and carved spaces.



Few months later and some adjustments later...needs some more detailing.



The size and the "black scissors" guy.


Thank you for viewing.



Regards,
jun Smile

Excellent as always Jun!   I'm guessing you secured the stone to the tray?

Oh my I am very envious. Thanks for sharing the inspiration, process and results. Great job.

Have you considered that the tray/pot should be larger. Does not seem to be firmly planted in the earth. Just a thought. Thanks again.

Jun, I don't understand the Tree's you have used on your Mountain scape.
I thought they were typically Pines or Junipers ???

In your climate and in your area, it maybe true. but, here in the tropics we have trees with much characters hanging and growing and struggling to survive in cliff sides. This is the same areas where we got tree materials with twisted trunks dead woods very few root systems. and those are the perfect exampes of the trees I am trying to illustrate here.

like these trees for example.

It looks amazing. How do you secure trees onto rocks?
Do you (or anyone else) have any source where one could find some guidelines on how to approach this task of populating the rock? Smile
