At the October 27, 2014 PSBA general meeting, you will see magic. Dan Robinson will demonstrate his work on a giant Weeping Red Pine that is destined to be a valuable and extraordinary bonsai. A large portion of the dead wood has already been carved, and Dan's demonstration will focus on wiring and designing around the trunk, all 7 inches of it. The tree is 32 inches tall and the carving on the trunk is the focal point. Designing and wiring the foliage will make it a bonsai, beyond just a beautiful tree in a pot. It will be a dramatic session, and you will have a different view of the art of bonsai by the end of the evening.
