Creation of the trunk – chart the future growth

bonsai general - 30 views



Is there a way to determine whether or not my wiring is suitable for creating bonsai in my mind’s eye? If! I found it in the garden of Mr. Iwakiri. Iwakiri recommends modeling the link line before wiring the real trees. He demonstrated the idea with newspaper and aluminum wire.

The idea is to create a model of trunk candidate curves and then build the model to the desired thickness of the future trunk to evaluate the success of the initial curves. Many curves look great in skinny trees but look funny or sometimes disappear completely that the trunk thickens. Iwakiri recommends starting with a simple model taking a photo of the model, and then add paper mache or clay to simulate the circumference of the future trunk. The photos look good, he says, because it can be difficult to remember what the curves look beneath the clay.

Paper and wire represent young trunk – bottle tea is closer to the eventual thickness of the trunk

Iwakiri has the technique to good use. Here is a young tree that has been developing for 30-40 years. Rama work has only recently begun.
