Juniper Lib

Post  Milan Karpíšek on Sat Sep 18, 2010 6:32 pm

This juniper I selected in a nursery in 2006. First styling in june 2006. I restyled and changed front in 2008 and this year is good of juniper for first exibition in Prague. The juniper isn´t masterpicies or very good bonsai and The crown is a litle bit weight, but I love this tree.

I love to see these transformations. How you can make a nursury tree into such a beautiful piece of work. A great tree for only having 4 years of training.

Great progression Milan. Much better for taking off the lower branches. Very delicate and feminine tree.

Hi Milan, thanks for posting the history of tree. It's a very elegant design. As mentioned in Prague, the shaved trunk looks a bit thin now but as the live vein grows it should gain a bit more mass which will help the design. Your work on thercanopy was supberb.

Very Nice literati!
The only criticism I have is that the soil should not go as high up as it does, In my opinion. But, I dont know what you had to work with when you repotted the tree.

Good work with styling!

Very nice progression Milan... However, IMHO, as Rob said, the trunk does look a bit too thin, and although the canopy work is very good...it would be better with about 50% less foliage.

IMHO...without seeing this bonsai up close and personal...

Very good work with this originally ordinary material. You changed it into a fine and elegant/feminine tree. I also like to see that not every good bonsai is just from collected pieces from nature, which is not accessible for many of us.

thanx for all!!!

Todd: The pot come from Slovakia, but i don´t know who made it.
Neil: because the tree was in good condition all the seasons. It was grown very well and I worked on it, but I didn´t trim the tree only I made cut back in summer and fall.

Shimsuki: The nebari is not good that´s why I covered it with soil.

Bonsaistud: If It isn´t very good material to be a masterpicies, I don´t mind the large canopy.

nice progres....


IMHO ... ratio of crown and size of pot and thickness of trunk are unbalanced

I know the tree from real and the transformation from "nothing" to a cute little tree is very interesting and a good example how to make an unexpensive bonsai ThumbsUp . I´m also looking forward to a new and smaller pot, will you repot next spring?
