Choosing a shoku

<< < (2/7) > >>

akeppler:
This fine literati is exhibited very nicly on a thin wooden burl slice. A very fine exhibit.

akeppler:
Some nice examples of upright trees on cascade stands for visual effect. Very nice displays.

This seems to be employed more with shohin groupings than larger trees.

akeppler:
Formal black pine....
Formal shoku...

sublime...



Discussion?

MatsuBonsai:
Al,

Great post.  I'm still digesting most of it. 



I remember this tree, and the attempt to find an appropriate stand.  The stand was switched out at least 3 or 4 times before the owner finally settled on this one.  I'm ok with the height of the stand, but agree that the legs/weight/appearance is just not right.  If I remember correctly this seemed the best of the choices.

I have more photos to share as well, but can't find them at the moment.  There were a ton of unused stands "backstage" that members brought.  That's the great thing about a good club is the willingness of it's members to help one another create the best display.

I'm sure I'll have more comments as I continue to digest this post.

At our recent Toko-Kazari, (which by the way Boon has already penciled us in for next year) it was heard of Hideko Metaxis that when "one wishes to enter the art of bonsai display, then you have to have 200 stands and 200 scrolls, at that point you may be able to make one good display". Man is she correct on that one.
