The material is a nursery grown with a thick trunk, 3 years approximately in a training pot. It is very common to Scandinavian countries and you can buy it in a reasonable price. The original heigth of the tree roughly a meter tall. I cut nearly half of the tree and choose only the flexible branch to work on. Im running out of wire and so I decided to removed all of the thick hardly bend branches. Peeling the bark of the tree will create a Shari/Deadwood which will enhance the appeearance to look more mature. The technique applied is an influence of high altitude falling rocks hitting the tree. Presence of moss and pebble stones looks it more appealing.

I love this tree. You are very brave to cut so much away first thing. It works beautifully. May the tree live many years!
