Carving and change style

Post  lnvinh on Tue Nov 24, 2009 10:41 am

This Desmodium Uniforliatum tree used to be a semi cascade and the trunk looked very bad. I just carved it and turned it upright to Informal upright style with double trunk:

Great looking tree now, Vinh.

Do you have a picture of what it looked like before your changes?

Great tree Vinh

Is that the natural color of the wood or did you paint it with something?

I like it very much. Specially the carving work.
Do you have a photo from before, when it was still a semi cascade?

This is the beginning of the work: I am going Pick up and re_arange roots. Then scrape up and turn up as picture above:

It is the original wood, but color was darker than when applied more a kind of solution to protect wood surfaces.

Decent transformation - although the semi cascade was more artistic in my view.

I love the way you wire the roots - that's great way to improve the nebari.

I like them both, though I'd possibly go with Rob's notion of the artistry of the original being a major plus point. This may be because it presents more of a landscape than the revised version. The original also reminds me of a favourite tree of mine in nature so perhaps I'm biased towards it for that reason.

I'd be happy to have either (or even both if it wasn't now impossible) on my benches.

Just one thing: pull the grass out of the pot and rather plant some moss.
