Oyakata gave me a tree a while back to wire, style and make look nice. A mountain collected juniper that had already been re-potted and the front chosen some time ago. It was just a case of recreating structure, making pads and trying to make a clean look, whilst still a natural feeling.
The tree to start wasn’t looking in bad condition and was looking very natural but, in good condition for a wiring to make look good.
I started with normal shimpaku clean up, cleaning the foliage live vein, etc and then on to wiring.
This was the final result.
Another tree that I was given to work was a small cascade.
