Thankyou all for your input. Very Happy So if we break it down to a specific area to justify this image, it would be growing just over the crest of a hill, mountain or scree slope. The tension I mentioned earlier, maybe needs better explanation. The intension of the bowing of the trunk against the wind direction, was meant to give the impression of current high winds and the effect of this. Not just the effect.

Nice start for pretty plain material. I'm wondering what China has to do with it?

....And the example posted that inspired/influenced the design were made by Robert Steven, an Indonesian. but he is also into Chinese antique furniture, probably that's how China got involved in the title of this thread.

As long as the tree looks nice it's fine by me, I don't care about the wind, let the wind blows where ever it wants to blow.

regards,
jun

Very Happy

Will, I like how you styled your tree and the tranformation, the before-after, is dramatic and artistically well executed.There is a lot of feeling and tension. The photo of the larch on the crest is awesome. I love the windswept forest you used as inspritation,too. I love Robert's work and am waiting patiently (no, that's a lie, I can't wait....) for his book "Visions of my Soul" to arrive. The twists and contortions in your branches shows that you have advanced technique IMHO. I aspire to mimmic that look, when and if the right tree comes a long. You certainly made a silk purse from a sow's ear. Congrats. I wonder how it will look when the needles emerge? Please post a photo then.
Best, Todd

hi will , happy new year, i like what you have done with the branches ignore all these comments about wind, you are right, in fact if it was me i would lean the trunk over to the right hand side and make it even more dramatic , it would also reduce the height making the design more compact wind or no wind. regards john

Hello Rob. Cant remember the name of the book and from memory it was in Chinese anyway. The book was full of windswept images just like Robert Stevens (sorry Robert for calling your creation Chinese).

Dear Will

As I allready said in this topic, do you make very nice trees. Now I learned, thanks to Hans's photo, that similar trees, to your creation, actuly is to be found out there. Very Happy The windswept trees I find in my surrounding nature, is very diffrent.
It could be funny, if IBC-members would post photos, of all kinds of windswept trees, found in the nature,
for the inspiration.

Kind regards Yvonne

A great idea, why not use the gallery section and start a photo library of inspirational trees, which I think might be preferable than looking for threads on the topic?

Cheers Steve. 700 views since I posted in leaf. Not that I'm counting. I was out in a very warm garden today, preparing for the Best of British tomorrow and I kept hearing cracking noises. Finally worked out it was the Pine cones opening on some of my Scots Pine.

You really heard the pine cones opening? Wow! Your larch is lovely!
How long will you keep the wire on?

Wow. I'd say what you pulled off with this tree is a remarkable transition (all for the better). I'm not sure I would have gone there with this material......but you did and kudos to you! cheers

Post  alex e on Fri Apr 08, 2011 8:05 am

Hi Will, mmmm interesting!!!!the only thing that doesn,t make sense is the difference between
the contorted branch work depicting one long hell of a hard life!, and a trunk that looks the
opposite scratch still! considering the material as I said interesting!!!see you at B of B ThumbsUp

Hello Todd. The wire will probably come off during the Summer depending how vigorous it is.

Alex. Try reading again and you will see I mentioned some work on the trunk in future.

Albert. Glad you like it. Seems to be a bit of a love it, hate it tree Very Happy

Having become almost nocturnal through work, I got a chance yesterday to take the wire off this Larch. Nearly froze my bits off in the process but it was good to feel the sun on my face.
