Gafu-ten 2015 part 1

Andys shohin bonsai

With our 10day trip fast becoming a distant memory, it’s only now I can find the time and the wifi to do some posts. Having enjoyed the trees on the first day without a camera in my hand, I left it to our second day to do some pictures. Having spent far to long in the sales area chatting with various dealers and friends I finally got to the trees only to find we had misjudged the closing time by an hour, so it was all a bit rushed.

Michael Hagedorn

All of the trunks come from one base; it’s one tree. The snows are so heavy where it came from that the young branches were brought down, and those branches later grew upwards and are now the trunks that create the clump.

This was the tree that started all my madness around finding new solutions for the slab question. Ironically, it’s the last tree I’ve put on a slab. This hemlock sat on a plywood slab for years, with me just dreaming about it, while completing other slab experiments. So, it benefited from other tree’s mistakes.
