Alex,

Great pictorial. I have met Mr. Lee and he is a truly gifted bonsai creator, a true pioneer in the Taiwan bonsai world.

Kind regards,

Terrific work and very nice renderings. I would not mind seeing the tree tilted up about 10%, just a thought.

Dorothy,

Thanks for the comment. Your suggestion is nice, but too stable. No wind direction.

Best Regards,

Alex

Alex,
great material, technique and total transformation! And the drawings are stunning to!!! I am sure it will be a very beautiful Bonsai! in the near future!
But if you dont mind me saying? I do feel that the design that was chosen, will in the future make the tree look bulky and massive in the top section when the foliage is full grown. Together with all that beautiful deadwood in that same top section it might look heavy and short. But that is just my opinion and I might be all wrong here! Smile
I made a quick virtual of what I mean.
Thanks for sharing it with use trough these progressive pictures! And I look forward to seeing this tree again in a few years time!
Cheers,
Hans van Meer.

Wonderful raw material and fantastic bonsai drawings.
Who needs to take trees from the mountains when such nursery material is available!

Good luck. I like Hans' rendition a lot.

Wow. They're all great. I also like what Hans has suggested.

Its simply difficult to grasp the concept that someone, somewhere out there is producing such magnificent material in a nursery.

Thanks for sharing this. Very Happy

Stunning to say the least! The drawings are beautiful. The deadwood carving is awesome. I even see the crane in the deadwood; surely it was intended, but looks so natural! I presume this juniper was grown in China. How old is this nursery material? Anyone know how to grow this kind of material?
Thanks and Salut, Todd thumbs up

Thanks for comments. This is a Taiwan juniper, grown from cut 30+ years.

Amazonida,

just hours observing nature and Taiwan high mountain juniper. Yushan San Po in Taroko National Park.

Neil,

Taiwanese bonsai growers have high level of skill. Trees are trained in the field, not left alone as crop.

Alex

Alex, how much does it cost to purchase a juniper like this, from a grower?
Thanks, Todd

No wind direction - are you kidding me? I think you could plant this tree upside down and you'd still have plenty of wind direction. Personally, I preferr this "too stable" look of Dorothy's (and Hans') design. But that's just me. Either way, what a terrible choice to face!

Beautiful, regardless of the angle. Thanks for sharing.

Mr. Russel,

Example of wind direction, Taiwan Single Seed juniper, Taroko National Park:




Planting angle, very important element. There are plenty point of view, your is one of them.

Mr. Todd Ellis,

There are plenty of juniper in Taiwan. Before, price less. Now, a lot. If buy from Mr. Lee. very expensive. Most first generation field grown juniper almost 40 year old, by cut. Some sold for 30 thousand U.S. dollars. Many export to China.
