Juniperus Chinensis design

I picked up a few cheap juniperus chinensis last year to practice design on and this one is about ready to be styled. Right now I can’t decide if I want to move this tree to the left for a tension/ semi cascade style or move to the right for a harmonious and more sparse design. What do you think would bring out the best for this material. Any feedback is welcome.

Hope everyone is having a good one!

Hi. Looks like you have two primaries going in competent different directions. For practice. I would Jin the entire upper trunk. Wire the lower and bring it up to form tree and it would interact with your really significant Jin


Interesting, I like that idea. I’m not sure if this juniper can handle that amount of reduction just yet but I set it up to where that will be a possibility in the future. This what I have so far after finishing structure.
