Large juniper that was styled by Michael Hagedorn in 2007. Though it looks like a Juniperus chinensis, the variety is unidentified. This photo and the before photo (below) are from Michael’s Crataegus Bonsai.
What a difference five hours makes
Michael Hagedorn restyled this monster juniper in five hours, and though I guess that doesn’t really qualify as a whole day, still, we’ll stick with ‘What a Difference a Day Makes’ (ask your grandparents). The operation took place at Miami Tropical Bonsai in 2007 and was captured on a video that you can watch on youtube.
I found the links to Michael’s post on this tree and the video on the Artisans Cup blog. If you don’t know about the Artisans Cup yet, it’s time to become educated. It’s going to be at the Portland (Oregon) Art Museum, October 4-6 (you can mark it on your new Stone Lantern 2013 Bonsai Calendar).
