Spring in Nick Lenz's garden

Post  DougDT on Wed May 11, 2011 5:20 pm

Had a great day working with Nick last weekend, it's always fun and educational to see what he's been up to over the LONG NE winter.

Can I move this string from Bonsai Questions to the proper forum, easily?

I count Nick Lenz and Graham Potter as my two most favorite artists and influences. Nick is one of the guys I feel who is bringing Bonsai into new and awesome directions and for that fresh insight and different style I applaud him. cheers

Can't belive I almost forgot to post Mr. Bush, Death Rides a White.... revolver.



Ok so it's not white, a little paint could fix that.

Outside the Lenz box

Doug, I gotta go with you or the club to Nick's. It would seem that to him a cracked pot is just working outside the box. I like! Dick T

Hi Dick good to see you here

Nick is a fount of inspiration and creativity.
Never mind outside the box Nick smashed that box with a WWII panzer tank. Twisted Evil

I had heard that, most unfortunately, Nick's panzer tank composition had withered and died under the stewardship of its purchaser.

If that's a recent photo, I'm happily misinformed.

iasnore, I regret to have say you are correct, the tank forest has died in its new owners hands. The owner was heartbroken; he’s been considering trying to reassemble it with new larches.
Those were old photographs, the first two photograph of it were in the new owner’s yard.

Nick's been selling off or donating his artworks, he's written a couple web articles about the process and his reasoning. I think the articles are in the Art of bonsai achieves.

Many of Nick's well known works are in new homes. The gargoyle trident maple, from what I heard, was purchased by NE Bonsai but was regrettably stolen shortly thereafter.

Nick's arrangements aren't for all tastes, but his design (IMHO) is always based on good Bonsai design fundamentals.
