Twisted Mugo pine -first styling-

Post  MerschelMarco on Sat Aug 27, 2011 12:06 pm

This mugo pine was found in 2006.
Two years later the tree was repotted, but I almost kept the original planting position
Last year the tree was repotted again, but the planting position changed dramatically.
Now it was time for a first styling.

Regards,
Marco

i agree...great tree! that new potting angle is lookin' sharp, too! i like what that does for the flow of the trunkline into the hanging deadwood section a lot.

thanks for sharing!

very nice tree
i like also your new planting position...it s strong
will you ...in the future...do some more movements and curves on the main branches?
i could be nice to try to reproduct some of the nicest graphic details of the trunk to the branches

it is only a suggestion...your tree will be very nice yet Wink

on quick idea
keep just one of the two trunks
and keep it twisted until the end
foliage is juste here to show the trunk line

Great tree. I like the potting angle suggested. BUT, the pot.....its a huge distraction from a great tree. Lots of visual competition between the pot and tree. Its like oil and water.

Cool tree though. Very Happy

Thanks for this great idea, I really like your version!

Neil
this pot was an experiment, but now I have to accept that it failed. I`m searching for a better pot.

Hi,

I feel that the drawing of the tree by erik really back scratch , or is it just an optical illusion, right??

I think this tree needs a considerably lighter pot when roots allow it.
I fully understand that it is probably too early to move it into a more shallow pot.
But in future I think it is needed.
Especially if you are planning on keeping the crown of this size.
Even with a fuller and larger crown, that pot would be too large and boxy.
Deeper Namban style pot perhaps, with that shari overhanging the edge?
Strict geometrical form kills the movement of this beautiful tree.

erik
i find your drawing very nice
i like your style..really...strong and clean
a lot more work than what i did.... Laughing

for the project for the tree...
it is nice also...but i feel the same than with marco's first shaping
for me... this form stabilize maybe too much the tree...and cool down the graphic energy of the trunk

i don t say it is bad
it s just a question of choice....
and of what mood you re waiting for the tree
make a focal point or play with the general graphic movement of the tree
both are interresting ways to search for in bonsai

The suggestion of Erik was a little bit unexpected. I thought about something like Cram drawed, a much higher pot with a lot of spacing to the right side.
But the longer I look on Eriks idea the better I like it.

Marco

It looks very nice, will you please provide some details on the container you chose? I think it is a great choice, I think the choice of Erik's suggestion would have been fantastic also.
