Changing potential

Post  Greg on Mon Mar 26, 2012 6:36 pm

This was an olive with uninteresting straight trunk collected 2 yeas ago.
The trunk during collection chopped with a straight cut at a height of around 40cm and left to recover. This tree had no movement and taper and it was not the ideal raw material to be used as a potential bonsai.

10 days ago during our workshop with Graham we used carving to tranform this stump to a more suitable material. It was an excellent material to master carving and the result left my more than satisfied. Now its look better than ever and the potential to become a decent bonsai incresed to the maximum

Just after collection

it's amazing how much difference a couple of hours of carving can do to a chunk of uninteresting trunk.
nice work!!

A repoting,and a couple more of carving hours and the transormation will be even better....so far so good...

Big tree Greg.what is the size of the pot?I still think that it needs carving to give some ageing look to that huge trunk...off course you have plenty of time for that...
