Title: [Sho|Chu]hin Japanese Maple
Post by: bwaynef on December 09, 2016, 08:19 AM
At the recent Silhouette show, I'd decided before I left the house that I wasn't going to be buying anything. (You can see how that worked out.)

This was tucked away on the back table of the Bonsai Learning Center and as I was purchasing it, Martin Sweeney complimented my eye. Turns out that the BLC had acquired it from him at some point in the past.

I stripped the leaves, cleaned up a few places and removed or reduced a couple of branches. I wired what was left into place and I think I'll leave it until it get reported in spring ...with the possibility of "soji" between now and then (although it drains well).(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161209/6611d4e97d9bcb0a53ee84188e64f971.jpg)(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161209/f29ee13111485b36b10532981ceb1dc0.jpg)(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161209/45da4eafe8d23c711a40f1c7b16c940b.jpg)(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161209/3d6ba5a0abf065ce035da067fe2ef6eb.jpg)

I agree.... Good eye.
Like the future for this one. Size?
It looks like a 6 inch pot with a height of 8 inches.....
Am I close?
