Cascade Bonsai Cavalcade

I have more than my fair share of cascade and semi cascade bonsai, here is a selection of the smaller ones photographed today including Yew, Communis Juniper and Olive. They are all still in development (maybe the olive is finished) They are super trees to work but difficult to transport to shows, typically I have to make bespoke carriages for them to fit in the truck.

Cascade Prunus Spinosa with Barbed Wire Stand

While I wait for a root stand of quality to present itself, I have decided to create something unusual. I have displayed the tree before on the wooded stand but felt it lacked something. A brainstorming session with Andy from Stone Monkey Ceramics and referring to the unusual tables shown on this blog and here you have the outcome. The twisted barbed wire was ‘found’ on the banks of the Thames near the Olympic Canoe sprit venue.  No cutting needed it just fits!

I will be showing the tree at the Bonsai in Wales event at the end of August.
