Philipp styling Scots pine

This is a Scots pine which is about 40 years old. And then there is Philipp who is 14 years old. He has been doing bonsai since 5 years !!! He wired and styled this Scots pine without help.

Great Talent Philipp
You'll become a great bonsaïka in the futur.
Good departure.
Very convaincant job with a tree who was not so esay to restyle.

Stephane,

this was not restyling, this was virgin styling of a collected tree.

Phillip has got a very good sense of balance and space, and he will be a very renowned name in the years to be.

Walter, has he been under your sole apprenticeship?

Philipp is a phenomenon insofar as he is self-taught. he read everything that ever was published in German about bonsai and applied his wisdom. He was at one oother workshop but did not like it too much. He does listen to me thogh and attends several lectures. Now he is here for a full week. And we make him a man.

Walter,

Very interesting--- he is a prodigy. That is why it is said that artists are born, not made.

He is in good hands, and you will surely make him a man.
