A Few of My Shohin

Post by Watto » January 1st, 2014, 9:32 pm

I have been impressed by Pup's and Gerards Shohin entries, and of course a few other entries by equally talented artists, so I thought I would show a few of mine. Now some are not quite in the 250mm or smaller catagory but there are just a few snips of the scissors away from qualification (trust me).
If anyone has any ideas for improvement please let me know, but in any case I hope you enjoy one or two of them.

Thanks for your best wishes. Its only lack of skill and lack of time that keeps them from progressing to the next level Pup, but I'm working on both.

Hi Percy,
I have sold a couple on so I hope the new owners will send a photo.
All the others are in various stages of development or redevelopment, but the semi-cascade English Elm (the first photo) has become an informal upright, and the new photo is attached. I have also attached a photo of the Zelcova and I will take a few shots over the next few days of the others.
