Post  Jose Acuña on Sun Mar 06, 2011 11:32 pm

This is the last tree to work on my last trip to Japan on 2010.
A Ikabaduki Pentaphyla Pine.



Already at the working table.



Hours of wiring.



Next to the kerosene heater, Laughing










Result.









It was my last night in Taisho-in and the truth had no desire to leave. The video ….

Hi Jose,
Impressive how this tree collects his roots and moves upwards.
Must be an experience to work with this tree.

The history of Big Momiji Part 1

This story is from the year 2008 on my first trip to Japan.

Riding in the van of the Master Urushibata and not knowing where to go or what you do always holds surprises, and maybe this one I remember most fondly.

On the way



The lunch on the way.




This time we found this huge Arce palmatum. (Momiji)



After removing his winter "protection" .




The nebari was impressive about 45cm in diameter.




Its owner sold it, including the pot that was already prepared





Quite heavy. It will continue.....

Hi Jose Acuna

The momiji is absolutely fantastic.....Can you say anything about the age of this tree......Is it naughty to ask you, how much money was paid for the tree....I only ask, because it is created, and bought in Japan.

Kind regards Yvonne

Hi Yvone;
Thank you.
I have no idea about age. Probably it is about from 30 to 40 years old.
Sorry I will never talk about the prices of my master Bonsai. Wink

Hi Jose Acuna

I understand.....I only dared ask, because it is a created tree, made for trade ....had it been a yamadori, had I never asked.
Good luck with the tree.... I wish it was mine Smile

Kind regards Yvonne

hi,
the pines are fantastic pieces of material - a credit to the growers for producing such balanced and beautifully refined trees, and beautifully wired - very nice to see, thankyou. The white pine raft is so realistic while the ramification on the black pine is basically perfect.

my personal opinion is that the maple is just ugly though, for me it has no concievable image of a tree - just a very fat 'slug like' trunk with many branches that are too skinny, to create an image in balance with a trunk this fat the lower branches would need to be thicker than my arm....i think this is a case of a popular commercial 'bonsai tree' style taken a bit too far, but luckily for us all everyone has different tastes - I'm sure there are many people who would give 750,000yen when it is ramified and the branches are refined though.

I love the transformation of the juniper - less is certainly more with this tree, again a pleasure to see, very nice indeed

The Itoigawa Juniper transformation is awesome; less is more and this tree looks very well balanced and old! I like the maple. I don't have access to that type of material (and/or can't afford) and would like to learn how to grow one with that type of taper; grow and chop, grow and chop.... Could you tell on this tree where the original cuts were?

Thanks,
Todd

On that maple, how would there be no noticeable signs of cuts on the trunk with that kind of taper? Would you have to use lots and lots of small sacrifice branches and never let them get fatter than an inch, rather than just a few huge sacrifice branches?

The story of Momiji Big Part 2: Video pruning.


We move the tree to Taisho-en.



A few days later we took him to the work area.



The Oyakata had decided it was time to work



Ariel Muñoz (shito), Salva Sorribes and Jeison my Taisho-en partners.




I took the opportunity to record it on video.






To cut the apex was a nice experience

Jose,
I enjoyed your video. What a treat to work on trees like this. I wish I could know what your sensei was thinking as he was working.
Thanks!
