Hi Law,
These are lovely. Did you style them? Where did they come from? Age?
Thanks,
Todd

I've done them. The first from a rooted branch (bouture in french) and the second from a seed.

They have both arround eight years old. They are young for the moment but in the future i think it will work.

Hi,

Is this the "technique" that consists in letting the branch eat the wire?

Salut,

Est-ce la "technique" qui consiste à laisser la branche absorber le fil ?

It reminded me of a twisted hazelnut (Corylus avellana contorta) I keep in a big pot for winter display: the catskins hanging from the twisted branches are quite a pleasant sight when it's leafless. When it's in full leaves though, it's quite uninteresting, if only because the leaves are too big, but also because it's hard to see any design at all in what looks like a messy bundle.

Ca me rappelle un noisetier tortueux que je garde en pot pour les chatons qui pendent des branches tordues en hiver. C'est très agréable à regarder, mais quand il est en feuilles, sans grand intérêt, ne serait-ce que parceque les feuilles sont trop grandes et aussi car cela, donne l'impression d'une masse informe.

Law, I like them both. Very creative. Good use of basic material; once again showing there is hope for bonsai beyond collected trees.

It's great to see someone pushing our expectations of standard form, especially with broadleaf trees. Keep it up, and thanks for posting!

What species of elm is this? and why does it have such contorted branches? Also what is the wire engulfing method mentioned by another poster in this link? thanks

I hope you happen to carry out these free of elms préfabricated idea.
You've find your way.
Just imagination, and botanic rules.
Thank you for your openness. sunny

The first is a Zelcova nire (japaneese elm) and the second is an ulmus chinensis.
For the concorted branches what can i say ? Why not ? I like to make trees coming from space. Razz
The wire engulfing consist in let it inside of the tree to keep the exact cures that have been done initialy, not very important to talk about because at least they are completely swalowed by the tree and nobody can see it if no one tell him that the wire is in the inside.

Is the wire inside the tree by just letting it grow over standard wiring? or do you carve out a trough the length of the branch and then tuck the wire into it? Is the last photo several saplings grafted together?
