Pinus nigra - big bending

Today when I was enjoying in my bonsai, my eye stopped on this black pine. Actually it stopped on this curve of the upper branch. So I got to work. First I wrapped the branch with rafia.

And then in plastic tape.

I used some special techniques.

The look for now.

In spring I will repot the tree. And in the future I will holow the lower part of the trunk.

Maple - repotted

I repotted this maple (acer palmatum 'deshojo') allredy some while ago into this ERIN pot.

Some people dought in my repotting in autumn. But I told them, that I will keep all repotted bonsai in the winter in a room where the temperature will be allways above O°C.

The maple has only been repotted now. In sprin it will be pruned and wired a bit.

On Saturday we went to Brixen (in italian Bressanone) in hope to see one of the best bonsai masters of the world, Kunio Kobayashi. But when we got there, he was allredy gone, because they didn't held to the schedule, placed on their internet site a while ago.
Oh wel... Anyway we enjoyed on the excellent displayed trees.

There's another wanderfull Saturday behind us. This time a competetive one. We held a competition in shaping bonsai.
The trees were for quite a few levels higher/bether then on all out meethings to date. Seven hours of shaping went by like a blick of an eye, I can't belive it myself.
Big thanks to the organizers that took cate for most of the organization.
