Ken's Mangled Style Workshop with Shipaku Junipers

Here are a few shots from Ken's workshop at the May ACBS meeting. Ken called this style of tree "mangle-ations" or "mangled style." He also related that he believes the Japanese word is "Fuko abuncho ?"

Whatever you call them, it was a lot of fun and the members put together some good trees. The 1st pictures are before and after of some of last night's trees.

Also with some of the trees, a srtipped "shari" was created before wiring and shaping. As the tree grows the shari will turn into an interesting feature of the trunk when the raffia is removed after the growing season and as the tree ages.
