Mid-December 2016: Another Hawthorn bonsai (Crataegus monogyna) of mine detail-wired and pruned in December after leaf-fall. Those that have read my book "Bonsai Inspirations 1" will remember this one as it features as one of the Progression Series within the book.
Height 27"/67cm, trunk diameter (above base) 3.5"/8.5cm
Developed from an old collected tree stump collected in the Greater Manchester area in 2002.
Pot by Victor Harris of Erin Pottery

This tree features in my book "Bonsai Inspirations 1" and an online version of the Progression Series can be seen here

Mid-December 2016: Another Hawthorn yamadori at the beginning of its development into a bonsai.after cleaning, carving and then staining the deadwood in mid-December. 
The tree had very vigorous growth through 2016, it's first year after collection, and the primary shoots were wired in September to allow me to put some fairly heavy bends into them.
Carving had to be extremely subtle as the trunk already had naturally beautiful deadwood from many decades of deer and rabbit abuse! 
What will eventually be the 'front' of the tree features many fine layers of callous that have then been chewed back further by hungry animals, and now features a couple of very prominent bulging live veins.
