Kaytunwill Pine

Post  Tony on Thu Apr 28, 2011 10:26 pm

This is a Pine that Pavel brought over for me last November when he came to Burrs with Mirek and Jakub.

I would not normally work on a pine that had only been potted the year before however this pine was responding well PLUS I used a strong strap to hole the tree firm whilst I worked.

The major branches were first wrapped in Raffia then Self Amalgamating Rubber Tape. Minor branches only had Raffia and thin branches no protection. ONLY copper wire was used.

I tend to style from the bottom up, working each branch and positioning before I wire the next. I always have the image in my head that I wish to achieve, this process saves wiring unnecessary branches.

I decided to work the deadwood after styling as I wanted the canopy to determine the size of the deadwood. On this occasion no long jins or stylised carving, only hand tools were used.

Pavel, If you have any early photos of this tree please post them.... hope you like the tree!

I have named the tree “Kaytunwill”

The pine with the first branches protected





The tree strapped in and the first low branches wired





The low branches styled and placed




The next branch Placed




Branches at the top of the tree are protected with Raffia



The styling without the deadwood being worked



The large deadwood stump



Stripping and peeling the wood to create a 'Natural' appearance



Creating light and shade and 'tapering' the stump





The stump after burning with a small blow torch (see previous post)



How the tree looked at the end of today, I will spend the next few days 'Tweaking' and refining

That may have been said with the wrong sentiment. I just have other commitments.

Thanks Pavel, I knew I could rely on you.

After a bit of 'tweaking' I have changed the front and moved some of the foliage Suspect

That looks good Tony. Like the negative space.

I was going to work on a bonsai today and name it "Endeavor" in honor of the last launch, but it scrubbed today.

Glad you asked that Will - had me wondering too. I thought it was a Lancashire thing - maybe a pattern on a flatcap or some magic ingredient you add to a hotpot Laughing

Great transformation Tony, you've really brought out a great image from Pavel's original stock.

Any chance of a photo from the back view?

I would not normally work on a pine that had only been potted the year

Fron wooden box to bonsai pot and then fully styled in a few months?

Surely this goes against all the teaching I've ever read or heard of regarding bonsai?

especially pines, this must be a risk to the health of the tree?

Hi John, I understand your concerns however I would not risk loosing a tree of such high quality by being impatient, the tree is very strong and responded well to re-potting. No roots were cut nor any major work done on them. 'Re-potting' was more of a re-positioning from horizontal to upright.
