Fun in Cordoba, Mexico

Post  Rob Kempinski on Sun Jun 26, 2011 1:29 am

Had fun today doing a demonstration on a large Buttonwood (Conocarpus erectus ) in Cordoba, Mexico at their annual exposition.
The tree belonged to Miguel Ross owner of the premier latin American bonsai musuem, Tatsu Goro.




Afterwards with my two assistants, Rodney Cendo and Mauricio Guieterrez Espinosa. We refined many jin, carved taper and selectely pruned branches to build a tropical canopy.

Button wood

Hi Rob
That's a fine buttonwood and great results. That's the largest I have seen in a long time. I sure would like to get my hands on one like that. I have several Shohin and one 2 hand, but nothing like that. If you have any sources on any larger specimens I would appreciate it.
Thanks Mitch

Here are as few before and after photos from the other demonstrators on stage with me.

First Salvatore Lipporace from Italy working on a nursery grown Juniper procumbens. Luigi Maggioni from Modena was his assistant.


After cutting hard, bending branches and placing foliage.


Next was Zezao from Brazil (Zezao is like the musician Sting - goes by his one word nickname) Laughing

And the product of his demo.

Here is Zezao in the middle celebrating with some other attendees. (That's Calos Ros on the left, don't know the name of the gent on the right)


Next, my friend, Nacho Marin from Venezula. He worked on this tough juniper.


His result


There were quite a few other demonstrations which I will post some when I get my photos sorted out.
