pemphis in a "crescent" pot

Post  Guest on Wed Nov 17, 2010 11:04 pm

Hi IBC,
It's me again.
I would like to share one of my latest composition. recently this tree was posted as part of my pemphis post. If I would keep the tree in its previous form and in the boring pot it would take at least 3 more years to have some sort of almost complete feel. but i cant take 3 years of waiting then come up with "another" regular tree. So I decided to put some added drama to my tree.
The pot is also made by me...

before.......


in the new pot.....ht of tree form soil line is aprx 50cm



I am gradually reducing the foliage mass on the lower trunk to have a visual focus on the upper branches and trunk.


the pot detail... just still on the experimenting process, so forgive the minor lapses on details, it will be covered with natural growing moss soon anyway.



regards,
jun

The two different pots make the tree look like two different trees. Amazing how this is! I like both presentations.
How do you make your pots? I would love one of these rustic pots. Are they high fired to withstand temperate climates?
Cheers,
Todd

Thanks Todd.

here is another detail of the pot...




its a mixture of concrete with two layers of different wire mesh, and some plastering compound I used in building houses to minimize cracking of surface.

John,

Hello again!

thanks.

the pot itself cost less than the amount would cost in sending one to the states.
I'll send you PM on the amount I spent on the pot.

I might have to try my hand at making a fondue pot. Your pot looked like clay to me.

Todd,

I got some more of this kind with real like clay appearance, colors can be adjusted too, the good thing is that it wont fade because the colorant itself is incorporated in the entire mixture. It wont also break because of the wire mesh even when you dropped it "accidentally" at table height, unlike clay pots... the pot posted above is not entirely concrete so it weighs less than pure concrete.

Hi Jun,

Good to have you back and with an informative post at that. I had liked the earlier styling of the tree and I also like this new styling. I'd say both are equally good. In the new styling, I hope the foliage of the lower branch grows quickly and extends beyond the foliage of the top branch. That way the balance would be great. I am sure a single growth season would do this. All the best. Interesting how you made the pot. It looks good and blends with the overall composition without screaming for attention. Great work as always... Keep it up...

Regards
Ravi

Ravi,

thanks again.
I'm still learning to do this kind of pot...I really am a frustrated potter. and there are near to zero supply of good bonsai pots here. that's why I have to make do of what ever I could find...even construction material and building technique.
......the pot can always be replaced, if it didnt turns out well.
