First time penging exhibit

Post  will baddeley on Sun Sep 04, 2011 4:38 pm

Love the first one Jun. Perfect. I have to agree with Russ on the Muffin top for the second with the soil hanging over the rim of the pot.

Hi Jun

The first tree look very nice with slab, and surface of the soil, I also like the budda, but think , just like Billy, it look indian. But maybe it does not matter.
I will have to see the next tree in the slab. And the temple have to go....

Nice to see your face Smile

Kind regards Yvonne

Thanks!
One of the technique you can apply in checking out the scale of your tree or if it a penjing is take a few steps further back than the usual viewing distance you are accustomed at. then cover one of your eye. while checking for scale and flaws. or take a photograph of the tree/composition and check for the balance and form. In my response to Marcus comment, I gave emphasis on forming a triangular shape of the overall image, it is the basic of bonsai and same is applied to penjing or forest planting, to confine the eye in just one whole image.

Good luck

Well said. I like often to stand far back and squint so I can't see much details. Just outline and contrast and basic shape. Best of luck to you @ penjing show

I am not a big fan of penjing but this one is amazing. Everything from the tree, slab and the buddha go perfectly together. By the way, where did you get that buddha? I want one.

I got it Bro,

All of which is great, so what technique did you actually used in experimenting that kind of pot, the manner of designing? did you actually used a mold for this one and the pot you used in your phempis? what are the materials? is it ok if you have an step by step process in making this pot, if it is not to much to ask..hehe

Many Thanks,
ferdz

Bro,
Actually, i was thinking of a replacement of pot for my forest, if you still recall this one...

I want it to be just like that, a natural look kind of stone for a pot for this forest of mine, what do you suggest about it?

thanks,
ferdz

The shape created by the soil and slab perfectly reflects the shape of the tree. Really nice balance to it Jun. Thanks

I like your tree on this matching slab. How did you attach it to the slab?

Wow, what the heck is this? What a sweet little tree!

And the ficus looks 1000% better on the slab than it did overflowing that pot. You got rid of the "muffintop" too! ( http://wacojamz.com/blog/2010/10/whats-going-on-with-the-muffin-top/ )

I think a deeper, cupped cresent stone would be perfect. But then I live in a perfect world...

John, Damien, and Yvonne,

Thanks Guys! do you think an aerial roots would look good on the "semi cascade" branch on the right, then I will extend the soil/moss area longer to the right side where it will catch the aerial roots?

jun Smile

Hi Russell,

I am glad you finally like the ficus ( I hope hehehe). Actually the top is still a bit young looking compared to the trunk and main branches and the development of a convincing branch structure would take a year or two to accomplish. But I am a bit contented with the trunk and base of the ficus for now.

The small tree on the rock (penjing) is a Vitex specie. The leaves of this particular sub specie is the smallest one. To distinguish the different sub species the locals categorized these with very funny name to match the size of the leaves.

"Mulawin Aso" translated literally as "Vitex Dog"- the biggest leaf size
"Mulawin Pusa" translated literally as "Vitex Cat"- second to the biggest leaf size
"Mulawin Daga" translated literally as "Vitex Mouse"- smaller in leaf size than the two above
"Mulawin Surot" traslated literally as "Vitex Bedbug" -the smallest leaf size among all the Vitex specie (the most coveted one)

Here is one of my "Vitex Mouse" hehehe






regards,
jun Smile

Hi Todd.

Thanks!

The tree's base were cut off...



Then concrete were placed and dried where the the base of the tree were located, creating protruding small rough surface like thumbs sticking out, then the tree is placed with anchor wires, when the new roots formed and matured in the slab it will naturally hold the concrete "thumbs" and won't loose its grip even when tilted.

I hope I explained it well- running out of English words lately. hehehe.

jun Smile

Hi Jun

If you want to use more arealroots, I would take them there. Please look at black drawing.
I would not do it on the kaskadebranch IMHO



Kind regards Yvonne

Yup! That area needs more of that "nebari". darn me, It used to have some roots already in the area and I cut it all, small roots over the big ones.

I'll make a low tech illustration later of the idea.

thanks Yvonne!
