MAPLE CLUSTER BURL DISPLAY

This is one of the most unique display pieces you will ever see.  The reason being you have to have the finished vision while running a chain saw to make the cut.

This free-form, natural edged, MAPLE CLUSTER BURL  was cut by me in 1985-87.  I did not know what it was going to be used for but I knew it was worthy.

In fact so worthy that I finished both sides.  When we cut this piece it was fresh and still covered with bark.  The only way to get the bark off of this piece without damaging the surface was to age it in the wood pile outside.  After 2-3 years outside most of the Green moisture is gone from the piece and all off the bark peeled off easily.

img_2067Note the great natural detail and texture.  without a doubt a piece I know I won’t replace any time soon.

img_2060this shows the display with a 9x6x3 inch Japanese  pot from the mid  90’s and  with a Redwood bonsai about 24 inches tall.

Redwood Bonsai

Love the concept of Bonsai Redwood.  Take one of the biggest growing items in the world, and keep it small.

We will be showing some of our REDWOODS  being up to 15 years in our care.  The first ones we bought as seedlings in Northern California.  The latter ones have all been cuttings from those.  We do have pictures going back to the start for these trees.
  

   
 

The above 3 photos show one of the 15 year old REDWOODS .  Note the 1890’s Horseshoe, from Nothern San Jocquain valley..  Intentionally I leave as many starts as I can for three  main reasons 1.  New starts. 2.  Root ball development.  3. If the tree dies we will be left with very highly figured BURLi

While this tree is coming along nicely. It still has many years to go before it becomes the world class specimen that it will become.q
