Looking great Jun, I love the way the tree's look so rugged and wild, could easily imagine them on a cliffs edge open to the elements.

Hi Shannon.

Thanks.
I'll reduced the length of the branches once I got the right girth. from then on I can developed a ramified structure of branches. So for now it will still look wild for some time.

Looks like somebody is sabotaging you, Jun!
But he is constantly eating your dust!
I am happy to hear that the tree did survived!
I wish you the best!

Hi IBC.
Today I removed the thick wires. most are biting into the branches now.






When I got the desired branch thickness most of the branches will be cut back short to start the tertiary branch development.

Hi Jun
The tree composition is awesome and there is a lot of 'visual drama' going on. However, in my opinion the pot does not compliment the visual movement of the trees. It has straight lines and contours. I think that a slab or an oval pot would be more sympathetic. But again that is my opinion. If only Dororthy could do you a virtual!

Thanks Cosmos!
Oval pot was my first choice. But I found it too soft. The square shallow pot gives more contrast and put emphasis on the ruggedness.

Was it a revenge from once you had ever poured your oil somewhere ? Evil or Very Mad Good to know they survived anyway...

They are truly nice Jun, I mean it and yes, they look familiar to me..haha...
It's one of the best solutions to combine two or more trees together when you have them individually minor (maybe some say these casuarina look wild and nice, but you and us who do casuarina know what when I say minor..); then you can minimize the weak point and put them synergized together in new design composition.

Just if you may allow me to give my humble comment..when do a grouping like this, try to avoid putting trees in one straight-line. I'd suggest to move the left tree slightly to the rear side, and by doing this, you can create better perspective.

Hi Jun
I am sending you what I had in mind when I told you to use a slab. This is a design by Peter Adam from bonsai focus 135/112 (Sept/Oct 2011). I see a lot of similarity in this picture and your composition how it will unfold if you opt for the slab. But agian it is your decision.

Hi Cosmos.
Thanks!
The tree above is being developed as a wind swept design, inspired by Robert's approach to windswept design.

but I got another tree which you might find interesting and quite similar to the one you posted.
Though is not in a slab the character is cunningly similar.
here it is Cosmos:

The other tree today...going separate ways now.
Branches are still young but this is basically going to be the future form/profile of the tree.













Used Oil stain marks still visible on the lower part of the trunk:evil: Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

Ferdz,

Thanks pre!
I made this pot for this particular tree to mach its movement and trunk character though, I find this too heavy (per cubic inch). so I experimented with other formula which I am more satisfied now and using it for other pots and slab ( see the blue bell in the slab at "first.. penjing"), it weighs less than 50% per cubic inch.

Regards,
