murraya raft

Post  Guest on Mon Apr 25, 2011 12:36 pm

Hi IBC.

just pull out this raft from my forest,,,don't know where to put it at the moment so I made a black slab to house the murraya tree temporarily while developing it further.





I'm planning to use the tree in a landscape soon.

Jungle design...that's an upgrade from forest design. I like the idea, thanks!

John,
thanks. other than taste, the slab is more practical for me due to rareness of quality bonsai pot here.

Faisal,

Thanks a lot!
the tree is not very old yet, just a couple of year old, I'm the second owner of the tree and just improving and changing the design. I'll probably make a wider base of the tree and wider canopy, to enhance the age effect further.

My forest are just like building LEGO blocks...so that I may change it if I got bored.

I really like this image. It is not just a jungle - it is any forest where there is running water since the tree on the right has fallen as the stream bank was eroded. In the US Midwest where I grew up it is maple, beech, or several other hardwoods. In the US Pacific Northwest the trees are hemlocks, firs, or larches. Does this same image come up with Scots pines in Europe? It is an image that resonates with anyone who has hiked along a stream. Now I have to create my version in maple and perhaps larch.

Marty,

thanks!
That's the image I want to portray in the future landscape. A huge tree with a big branch that fell over a stream. i'm glad it conveys that image at this early stage.

Hi Jun,

Thanks again for the photo tutorial. The slab looks great with the mature and well designed Elm raft on it. The Elm does look great
by itself in the slab. Good that you pulled it out of the forest planting shown earlier.

Regards,
Mohan.

Hi Jun

Being from a tropical area with some of the same trees here, you have been one of my IBC heroes! Very Happy Anyway not to discount this beautiful tree, I too wonder how to make the slab. Laughing
I saw somthing by Walter Pall,( I think) where he used foam core to make it light and I forget what he covered it with plaster? or fiberglass? It was really cool because the result looked like Yosemite or the Alps.
