Shohin Itoigawa

Post  Pedro G C Almeida on Tue Mar 31, 2009 7:11 pm

Hi All!

This juniper came to me recently from Ken Leaver of Windybank Bonsai. All I did was to clean up a bit so that the structure could be seen.

I have a few ideas of what can be done with it, but I would like to get to know your thoughts.

Here are a few photos:













Hope to hear from you soon.

Regards,
Pedro

Thank you for the virtuals, Rob, they were much appreciated. I like both pots.

I'm wondering which front to choose. There is, of course, the most obvious one (shown in my third photo), but I believe there might be other "hidden" possibilities which I cannot clearly see.

Another question is as follows: suppose I choose front number 3. Should the branch on the right be removed or transformed into jin, so that the composition is more dynamic? Or should the branch on the left be the one that goes, since this would enhance the shari?

Any further input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Regards,
Pedro
