I had Adam Lavigne over a couple weeks ago to help me style a few trees. If you read bonsai blogs you know who he is and in the rare case you don’t his blog is AdamAskWhy.Wordpress.com. When I say help, I really mean just let me watch him work his magic.
Here’s a ficus salicaria that he wired out for me.
Here is another he wired. I’m developing it from an S curve mallsai.
There were also a couple of big junipers on which he created deadwood, removed branches, and wired the basic structure. I need to get some better pictures of the work. That’s for part two.
