Nice creation dude. Perhaps cascading the right branch gives a more dynamic feel to the whole if you know what I mean.
Awesome that you truly put it on a rock instead of roots over rock.

I particularly like the general composition... No that much the tree itself. However, I do believe that the important thing is the care and intentions you put on those things you do. Therefore maybe time, patience and propper cares could bring their magic. Do please keep us updated on this creation.

Kristof, will you tell us more about how you put this together? I'd like to try it.

Easy, I got this rock from a shop, little juniper from nursery, pruned the roots and wired the tree to a rock.
The rooots are in zeolit covered with keto and moss.
I dont have a great tree to put there instead so I went for a composition portraying a tiny conifer or a shrub growing high up in the mountains.

In the spring I "repotted it to different angle and put it whole in the pot, and yesterday I styled it a bit to look more like a tree on a rock up in the hills.

I like your work Kristof. It is artistic, and looks fun. It is inspiring, and shows that nice creations are possible with young specimens, heck even mallsai. Could be a fun thing to try out as I wait for my future Bonsai to develop (which is going to take years....).

That´s it dude, you got my point.
With a little effort and fantasy even mallsai or tiny pre pre prebonsai can make a nice sight while it is waiting for it´s greatness :D
