I’m interested in discussing the interpretation behind the recent nursery stock holiday bonsai stream. It’s something that I’m going to try but I’m not sure what the ‘story’ is behind the end product.
Is it just a cool bonsai with shari up the trunk and coincidentally on the opposing face of the defining branch or is there a narrative that could explain how it would come about in nature eg where a major branch is subject to snow load and tears a large section of trunk away that subsequently recovers? Does anyone have any design ideas or examples for similar themes eg leaving the original trunk perfectly vertical, moving in the opposite direction, jinned almost to the base with the ‘defining branch forming a floating raft?
Let us know your thoughts.
