Here's Harry Harrington's caption for this tree... "Before and After images of the Carpinus betulus/European Hornbeam bonsai... The Before image was taken in 2011 after I had pruned and wired the branches; the trunkline had been formed by then and the basis of the branch structure put in place. Height 27"/66cm with a 8"/20cm trunk base. Pot by Victor Harris of Erin Pottery."
Harry Harrington is up to his old tricks; taking trees with humble beginnings and creating quality bonsai. And doing it without losing that natural touch that gives his bonsai their authentic feel
Harry's original photo with his logo. His caption reads... "An updated image of my Carpinus betulus/European Hornbeam bonsai. The tree was subject to partial defoliation, wiring and a re-build of the apex in July, for a forthcoming video lecture from Bonsai Empire. It’s responded with a new flush of much smaller leaves and I’m happy with it :)"
Harry is one of the most prolific bonsai artists we know. For a glimpse into what he's up to, you can visit him on fb or on his Bonsai4me website
I cropped Harry's original for a closer look. You can't really get a feel for the size of this tree until you realize that the base of the trunk is 8" (20cm)
