Well, our first meeting for 2009 got off to a great start with a major piece of surgery and styling being performed on a Japanese black pine. A piece of ordinary stock with many faults was carved, bent and wired into a form that was much improved. It was a drastic operation that is rarely seen at demonstrations. What a great start to the year and hopefully a taste of things to come!
