accent plant and play with clay

For a few years ago, I made some pots myself. Just for fun and because I didn't find the right pot for some trees of mine. For today the clay is over, it was the end. I made this pot during few minutes, and I burned in an old stove.

And this Sempervivum we've find on a rock. I took in the most hot pot.

It's good to see the end of my work.

hornbeam yamadoris

In the former post, I talk about some Hornbeam yamadoris.
The 1st one is a shohin size tree, in hokidachi style, the diameter of the trunk is cca 3-4 cm, the heigt is 22-25 cm.

The 2nd is a little bit bigger tre, but has a great potential. The height is 35-40 cm, cca 70 cm wide, diameter of the trunk cca 7 cm. And has a lucky root system. On the pictures you can see, how flat is.

The trunk looks like the old Hornbeams, with beautifull ribs (I'm not sure the english name), that runs from the roots, to the branches.

fall yamadoris

In the last few weeks, weekends I've made some yamadori huntings. I've collected some Ashes (Fraxinus Ornus) and European Hornbeam (Carpinus Betulus). The trees comes from different areas, but both are meadows.
The Ashes are in size of shohin, the bigest is maybe cca 25 cm.

So the first one is a kengai, or gaito-kengai style tree. There's not too much to do.

The 2nd is a more trunk tree with 15-17 cm height.

The 3rd and 4th is a two trunk, sokan tree, in different sizes.

And now, waiting for the spring ...
