The XI International Bonsai Exhibition took place in early May 2005 at Ksiaz Castle in Poland. Kevin Wilson (UK) was there to demonstrate the styling of a collected Juniper.
My thanks go to Szymon Lauer who was generous enough to send me these pictures of Kevins demo. For pictures of the Exhibition, please visit the Galleries
Kevin worked on a prepared yamadori Juniper. The first part of his demo addressed carving of the trunk.
This first image shows the trunk after the areas to be carved have been stripped of bark.
After stripping the bark, the deadwood was carved to add character to the trunk.
Once carving had been completed, the second part of the demo invloved wiring and styling the branches into layers.
Every branch is wired to gain maximum control over styling!
