Best Of British 'The Trees'

Post  Tony on Wed Apr 15, 2009 1:32 pm

Jerry's post was about the personalities.... this is about the trees. I was busy doing demos on both days so did not get much chance to photograph the trees without the crowds. Please post your photos and where possible caption them.

Russ Farley's Taxus Cuspidata



Ian Stewartsons Juniper



Peter Warrens Rosemary



Tracy Mortens Pine



A Trident Maple (don't know who's)



My Hawthorn

Wow, Steve did a nice job moving the foliage. The trunks lines look like the exeoskeleton of the alien we have in Area 51, especially its hip joint (oops shouldn't have let that out!) affraid

Hi Rob,it is a disturbing tree,sci fi bonsai!it was a great demo,some great ideas came out of the bag,literally one included bagging up the foliage as he moved it through a gap to stop the needles taking the bark off! brill demo,and not just for the end result,in my opinion Steve is at the top of his game right now,and the results of his work prove that,He's definitely England's bonsai master

It's dead obvious now you've posted such a well chosen lookalike photo, Tony. Great work by Steve. I want to see that tree in three or four years time!

Hey Tony,
The octopus was the first thing I saw! This is a very unusual tree. All of the trees are wonderful. I especially love the pot on the Yew.
Great work!

The pot on the Yew is by Gorden Duffet, an exceptional bonsai potter and a great inspiration to my work Very Happy

It is the one from the Wirral Twisted Evil

Thanks Andy for mentioning Dougs table, they really are a work of art, there were about a dozen of his tables being used in the show, I have raised the issue before, why are table makers not mentioned in bonsai show, we mention tree owner, pot maker and type pf tree but not table maker maybe it is something we can do differently in the future?

Les / Fiona

I totally agree. I think it is only right that the maker of the table is acknowledged. By acknowledging the maker of the table, as with the tree and pot, showcases their work to the viewer of the composition, IMHO, it is also a work of art. You don't get many hobbies with three different crafts coming together to make a composition, we are lucky individuals indeed Very Happy

Looking forward to my display case from Doug. I can't wait!!! It might even make my pots look half decent affraid

All the best

Andy
