Scots pine, Pinus sylvestris, from collected matrial. It was so unsightly for many years that I never bothered to take a pucture.
1) summer 2006, before
2) after plucking the needles and working on teh deadwood with chisel and fire.
3) wired and shaped, looks kind of strange and untidy. Well, it does not matter what it looks like rigth after first styling. It only has to look goood much later.
4) July 2007, not so bad after all
