Hello Jupp.
This spruce will get better over the years,
i mean now it is time who will give it its maturity
(with a little pinching, bending feeding watering from you of course)

I second that ThumbsUp

And...with all that nice deadwood, some detailed carving will add even greater character.

[BTW] Did you complete the first styling, i.e deadwood (bark pealing), pruning and wiring at the same time? - I would suspect this to be too stressfull at one time...(regarding creative deadwood'ing on one of my own spruces, which I just gave a first styling)

regards, Loke Emil

Thanks for your note sunip and Loke Emil
As I said, the spruce was 2004 collected. After 2 years I began to make design. 2006 in October, the first pot. Then again only minor works to this day. In spruce may weren only worked from time to time Wink

Sorry, but i disagree. While I appreciate the time and effort put in to design this tree, I just personally feel that deadwood is way over used these days. Looking 2 or 3 owners down the road, when the dead finally does rot away, there will not be much of this guy left. The work is nicely done though.

Hello Jupp and Mikeb,
Well it crossed my mind to, watching this tree.
But i think it is a conscious decision of Jupp.
The tree will compartment-alise ( hope that is English?) his live wood
and grow his own way, on spruce i do not know how quick he will respond to this.
What i do know is that they only take one thing at a time, it is surely not like say Larix.
Maybe that is the reason why in Japan such shari is not popular.
I think some wood hardener will come in use over time?
regards, Sunip Wink

Very nice Jupp! What would other wise be a boring tree is now interesting. Providing the tree grows healthy it puts on new wood, and yes there is always wood hardner to aid things along. Enjoy the now... cheers

Thanks for the update Josef,
I also agree and like the way you design your Spruce trees especially with the foliage pads that hang down below the branches, which to me reflects the natural pattern of our native Sitka Spruce. There are many species in our forests that do this and even though its not to everyone's taste I see it as a more naturalistic composition, even though it may not have been you intention to do so.
Sincerely
Graham
