I apologize for the delay to answer you.
The oval stand was made by me about fifteen years ago. I just liked the composition I did, but it is always good to hear other people's opinion, because we always see in a personal way. See some of my bonsai stand works on the following link: http://www.bonsaidream.com.br/img/pla/trab08.jpg
I hope it likes.
I thank their critics and suggestions!
Mike , Roberto Gerpe is my friend , and I`ve got some comments from him , and that`s what I`m sending you now
Hi Mike ....how are you ?
My name is Roberto Gerpe , and I`m just a enthusiast of bonsai art .
I `m envolved with bonsai art for about 18 years , and a few days ago I saw the Art of Bonsai Project ....and I like it very much .
It`s a forum ....isn`t it ?
So I saw my brazilian rain tree forest there ...
I did that forest like 12 years ago...from seeds.
The picture in your forum it`s like the forest look`s like now .
I sold this forest for a friend in Brazil 6 years ago .
Now I`m living in Florida..and I didn`t see that forest so far ......
I know and I`ve got to tell you that it`s so diferent for me ..
When I was there , I was keeping all the levels...and the folliage was not that thick .
I`m so sorry for that picture....but I can tell you that I`ll be in Brazil next year and I`ll do my best to set the forest the way I like ....and you too .
Can I be in touch with you and send you some more of my works ?
Now I`m a member of Shofu bonsai of Sarasota , here in Fl .
