Hello Jun,
The pot is better now, you give a certain statement-history with it.
Of course one could ask and imagine it also how it would be in a Japanese pot.
However when you look at the two lowest dead branches and consider then the relationship with the buffalo stand,
what do you feel?
For me the stand needs to be very simple giving the tree the opportunity to move freely.
As it is a beautifull tree, the vertical dead branch catches my eye as not necessary, it is of its own kind yes,
but not contributing in a helpful way.
On the blue bell,
Please do not break the branches, you could guy-wire them a bit down in stages just a bit though.
Or just leave the branches and clip and grow.
regards, Sunip;)

Yep. Getting there IHVHO.

Can I make two observations?

I still think having the pot on a slight angle would make the whole thing look less "formal". You have the apparent randomness of the tree having colonised the old pot. The angle of the tree is suitably haphazard but the pot is ranrod straight upright. Even a slight angling away would sort this - probably without having to break the bottom of the pot either.

The second comment is that I'm a bit distracted by the bit of wood that looks like a slug hanging over the side (I'll not tell you what my husband said it looked like Smile ) can this be carved better? Or can it be removed?






Again all just my opinion, but I do have to say that I really like the way you are having fun with this.

Thank you Sunip.
I'll be careful.

Fiona,

That is good idea Fiona.again. as if the pot was left in an old garden somewhere, then the tree grew in it. I think I know what kind of stand would fit well with that idea.

Tomorrow I'll do the following

1. cut some stone
2. tilt a jar
3. perform castration

I think size reduction first, to see what it looks like. Going for the full emasculation straight off, could be regretable.

Hello Jun. First class effort with both of them. Out of the two, my fav is the first. Very dramatic and you can almost hear the shore breeze blowing through the branches. The second one. The apendage carving is much better, but my eye is drawn to the gap under the bottom right hand corner of the pot. Did you carve out a hollow in the rock for this composition to fit? If so, could you carve a bit more to lose the gap. Seems picky but I think it will improve it.

Jun,

coming along very nicely for both of them.

The second looks a lot more professional, and has moved out of the realm of novelty, and into the realm of innovative.

If you get stuck, just look at both efforts using a mirror and the wrong end of a pair of binoculars. Also you can draw on a printed image of either.

I won't offer any advice as I feel, this should really be all and only, JUN!!

I will not say anything about the owner's face [ repeat, repeat, repeat ] Smile
Thanks for showing,
It is a real pleasure viewing.[ should make you smile all day long L.L.B long lost br...]
Take care.

Thanks John.

The month of May is still a long time to do few more tune ups. I still need to fill and extend the left most branch to negate the small vertical branch. So I hope I could grow the branches more and fast...I'm feeding my trees right now with steriods..hehehe.

...Also need to find a good stand if I can finish this tree on time.

HI IBC.

Just defoliated the elm to have fresh leaves and fine wired the branchlets..
..The ground covers are temporary..different kinds of shallow rooting grass Im experimenting with that I can probably use...
The background is white, just adjusted the camera setting and lighting to highlight branch color...so, forgive me if it's too bright. hehehe.
