Cheng Cheng Kung's Bonsai School (Taiwan Juniper)

Post  jrodriguez on Tue Jun 30, 2009 2:13 pm



Cultivated Taiwan Juniper. The tree is 30 to 40 years old. With the red chalk, San Shui (Water line) is marked. White chalk is used to delimit the shari.

He uses the F4 type burin to further remove the bark and prepare the wood for three dimensional carving. Note the cylindrical unweathered wood, typical of young trees.

With a spoon burin, he begins to transform the cylndrical shari into a three dimensional-weathered old looking tree.
Note: Always use gloves while perfoming this operation. Ensure safety first!!!

Shari after work. Note that the left jin and the upper part of the right shari is too cylindrical and will require further carving.

The right jin requires shaping as well. As is, it does not give the impression of antiquity.

Very good, I don't think I would have the nerve to strip so much bark but it is hard to dispute the final presentation. I guess I will have 35 years to think about it before the knife is in my hand.

After wiring and repositioning.

Note that no single green is positioned in front of the shari.

AbsoLUTEly stunning stuff. I really love seeing him at work! A particularly heart-felt "thank you!" for pointing out which of the burins he's using at various stages!

Thank you! Smile
