cheers Very Innovative Jun, congratulations! Im pinoy and a big fan of your creativity, this reminds me so much of the works of fellow artist bronze sculptor Michael Cacnio. I've been wanting to replicate his works in bonsai but, as usual, work gets in the way. Here are some of his works...

Tofuboy, thank you very much for posting those images!
How nice they are!
Mmmm I think I can smell candied sugar coming from the second one! I could give anything in return for being able to run towards the bench of that peddler at the age of the boy.

Tufoboy,

Thanks for posting some of Michael's works. I love his sculptures too and inspired like you in creating bonsai landscape similar to his sculptures. I think I have seen some of his works in megamall a few months back. If I am not mistaken the huge bronze tree with swing is his.

People,

Thanks again!

Hi jun,
Are you referring to this one?




...like mike's, i love your works because they show that, indeed, " its more fun in the Philippines" Very Happy

Hi robert,
im glad you like it, hope to meet you when you visit our islands

Hi my nellie,
your welcome, its actually an ice cream cart, and when you live in a tropical country like ours, the sight of an ice cream cart can be compared to that of a yamadori hunter zeroing in on a material Smile

Tufoboy,
I am not sure if that is the one. I think the piece I saw is much bigger...Not so sure though with the scale.

Anyway, thanks for appreciating my works. but Michael is a real pro. His father is a veteran artist that designed some of our Peso bills (money), right?

PS
Robert is definitely coming on the 11th, his critique and demo will be on the 12th of Feb. I hope to see you there. Lot of organizations are involved in the show now, and we are hoping for it be a huge but friendly event and a good learning experience for most of us.

We will announce the final program details before the months end.

Please, Prepare some bucks for his books if you are interested. we asked him to bring some, so that he can sign the books for us. Pm me if you plan to acquire a copy, because he can only bring a bunch.

regards,
jun Smile

Hi IBC.
I have a question.Would it be ethical to bring your own backdrop to a show,, to a backdrop less show?. I know it is costly to provide hundred of meters of white backing and it 's frame and I understand that concern. Will it be used as a basis for disqualification?

I find it personally difficult to appreciate the total being of the tree/composition if there are lot of distractions visible at the back of the display especially if the show is held outdoors.

....So, In short I am using this issue to create my own removable backdrop connected to a stand.




Now I got my own Flat TV......




A 4D TV....hehehe



If the organizer of a show will allow me to display this I'll bring it along...
Comments are always welcome!

regards,
jun Wink

Yes, Robert. I just got invitation to put a display/displays in the show (because I am not a member of our host club), so you'll be seeing this one plus the one I am reserving for you to comment on...at least in the flesh this time, we can re structure the whole composition in the show if we need to.

...and many thanks!

No, my kid is much better looking than me.hehehe.

See you soon.

...If there are more people like you who are open to new ideas, Why not Hirow?...Now how will we classify this? Penjing or bonsai? hehehe.


Thanks anyway. I 'll see you on the 12th! That is Sunday, So there is no excuse for you not to be there, right? hehehe.

There is a free breakfast somewhere on the 12th with Robert, I'll send you PM if you are interested. It is a small gathering for Filipino IBCers, so everybody is invited, just send me PM guys.

Jun, please remind me to talk about Penjing..so many people misunderstood about bonsai vs penjing.
I remember once a senior bonsai artist in Indonesia commented about my creations as a contaminated bonsai and unauthentic penjing...
affraid
At the same time, he commented my "bunjin" as a contemporer bonsai....describing the phylosophy of "bunjin" style bonsai like the old Chinese schoolar, skinny, but intelectual... drunken drunken cyclops

I don't even know what styles I am creating.... Sleep

The backdrop is a great idea - I've seen it done a couple of times. In your case it really adds to the composition.

Thank you Rob.

I have seen somewhere a photo of a Japanese show (They are not that strict after all) where a bonsai is placed inside an old television set (the one with wooden box/housing)....I guess mine is the the modern version,,,a super slim flat screen 4D Hi definition LED TV. Razz

...Would you believe the kite continuously moves up and down when placed in a windy area... Very Happy ...I got to find a table under an Airconditioned duct though.hehehe.

That would be a good idea Rob. I was thinking of doing making it wider, but I am concerned with the probability of occupying much space in the display area.

That's a bit mean Jun Sad I wish I could! Very Happy I would love to visit your beautiful country and do some Bonsai together with you! So if there is a spot fore a demonstrator next time....I am willing and able and would love to work on one of those almost legendary Phempis!!! Very Happy
And making your backdrop just a little bit wider is a good idea. But it is lovely anyway!!!

Hans,
You are always welcome in the Philippines! You won't regret coming here...I'll hunt a pine for you.
I'll be probably in UK before the year end...Hope there is a bonsai activity in your region by that time...and meet you and some of the folks here in IBC.

regards,
jun Smile


Folks,
The Show/exhibit started today...the tree looks well. BTW. and were not disqualified Razz Razz ...the only problem was where to classify it, as there is a penjing category and a separate category for plain bonsai, the same goes with my forest entry. Razz
