Sizing up new pot for trident maple with wide nebari


Fat Trident Maple Dug from MBP Bonsai Field

I traveled to MBP Bonsai this weekend for their Trident Maple Dig and dug two good sized ones.  The first and largest one was a mammoth to get out and I am stiff and sore from working on the beast.

Backside of the tree that was heavily carved with my new carving tool. A good amount of Van Aken modelling clay was used to seal the wounds.
