This stunning Hawthorn (Crataegus) raft yamadori bonsai was a joy to see, with a great future if developed well. Far too complex a tree to be fully considered or properly worked during a busy workshop, instead the raft was discussed at length. Its owner made a great job of moving the tree into a bonsai pot, leaving the removal of any trunks or heavy growth until a later date.
Yamadori Hawthorn raft, approximately 50cm wide, planted into a slab by one of the Leinster Bonsai Club members, Maciej of Magic Cermamics.
Another creation, an accent pot by Maciej of Magic Cermamics.
It is always a brave man that can chop the top off his tree to build a new apex!
