Cornus mas. Double trunk

Post  Vlad on Tue May 02, 2017 3:42 pm

2012 - first spot and a love on a first sight



2015


2017   Current height 46 cm.







It would take a great deal of time to get the top section of the " straw-like trunk" in proportion with the rest of the tree.   Great natural dead wood though...

BTW.  I have heard that all the great bonsai should have their own spider...  If this is true then there is a great future for this tree.   Check the last pic.  Have you spot a jumping spider there?

Thank you for your positive feedback Kevin.    Well, all the nice parts has been done by the Nature  and you have a good  eye to notice that  Cool.  My job is only to get the right proportion to the trunk and create a sort of an  airy branching structure and minimalistic foliage to match the story the tachiagary tells.

Brown eye.   I have a hunch that you are waiting for some kind of decent return from me.  I beg your pardon.  There are subtle differecies in your great language I have not fully grasped in my more or less just formal education...

Project:  Convert dead branch into top jin & remove some of the "weight" from the dead wood on the trunk.

Spring. Summer. Autumn.  Chisels, rotary tools, wood burner and rotary tool again.   Three sessions.  A sorrow disappointment in Spring.  Did not get any better in Summer.  Lot of hopes for Autumn session.  Not a good start,  but finally we have got close.  Not entirely happy, but I can live for a while with it.

Before. 2016


After. Autumn 2017





More details on blog.

It's coming out very nicely.

A not-so-common species for bonsai, all the more interesting. I'd love to see the autumn colours...

Thank you, Alain. I do love native trees. I think that we both follow the same path...

That's going to be really nice as it develops (looks good now). I'd love to find one with a nice gnarly trunk like this to work on, but they're not real common around here.

The Nature has made a great job here. Drienka ( the name of this species in Slovak, sorry I do not like the English name) is quite common around the place I live. But as my friend Maros Belan has said somewhere on the forum : " you have to see 500 trees to select one, maybe ".
