You so have an option here I would like to see if the display is still setup for photo(s). Remove the stand under the accent - I also think it would put more focus in the main display while making things tidierYeah, I wish I had a shrink gun to zap that pot with, the reason I'm using it, is the fish and the frog and the marginal plant all encompass the summer idea of this display.
Not set up right now, but I have contacted the maker of the stand, and will meet with him tomorrow to go over options. I think if I just had a metal jitta under the accent instead of a stand it would be better. Just have to decide how thick and what shape. Probably rectangle is safest, and a little thicker than the shelves would be nice.You so have an option here I would like to see if the display is still setup for photo(s).

I was going to suggest something very simple as you describe, perhaps ask him to cut a piece slightly larger then the legs of the pot irregular like a wood slab. Myself if it were a local show it would also depend on the color of the mat and background. If it is dark I would use none, light something like I just mentioned.Not set up right now, but I have contacted the maker of the stand, and will meet with him tomorrow to go over options.

I also wired the goji berry today, after seeing the photos, it showed me that it needed some redirection on branching. I will repost these after the changes are completed. Thanks for the kind thoughts. I know lots of other people have much better material and displays than I do here on the site, but many do not seem to feel like posting them is something they want to do.Sorry I’m being redundant here but home from work now and able to give these the time they are due and I reiterate that these look good to me. In fact the best I’ve seen posted on this site. You have some of my favorite trees here and they are displayed very well, especially on the metal stand. The use of that root stand with that tree is very good also in my opinion. Sorry it’s just unusual to see such good displays here - most seem to miss the mark somehow. I agree the accent in the shohin needs work but you are dong that. Thanks for the opportunity to review these. The moss in that rough little pot is just perfect.
Well your posts on bonsai display set me on this road, so it's kinda all your fault. The goji looks much more refined with the wiring I just did on it, should have time to set before the show date. Thank you Al.Beautiful displays, Thanks for posting. The three point is mucho bueno. For my brothers here in Fresno....
I was looking at the shohin display again. I think maybe you could tweak it by playing with the spacing. Try having the accent about twice as far from the main stand as it is at the moment. That may introduce more of a feeling of space, and make the pot feel less large. Also, it will break up the straight line you currently have between three of the elements.Yeah, I wish I had a shrink gun to zap that pot with,
Thank you for your thoughtful comments. I will share the new jitta once I get it made.Gorgeous displays!
The steel display is both very suttle and powerful at the same time
I love the way the lighter coloured accent slab compliments and even enhances the Hornbeam's light pot, connecting the two and sort of teaming them up.
The drawback is, it does draw attention a little bit away from the tree.
Therefore I would choose a darker, very small slab, that would be just barely visable underneath the accent pot.
This is just the way my eye sees it, I obviously have no knowledge or experience in this area.
Anyways; best of luck to you at this year's shows!
No problem with constructive criticism. It does need to fill out on the middle of the left canopy. I hope to get a little more growth in the next few weeks to get a better silhouette. It's coming along, and it was the only one with the correct size and movement to complement the rest of the display. I need more options as I get further into this discipline.I love them all!
... Except maybe the deshojo in the shohin "metal" display. To me, it needs more work in comparison to your other trees.
I hope you will excuse my being so frank, but I think this one doesn't match the others. Personal opinion of course.
