Noelanders Trophy Demo by Robert Steven

Robert Steven is one of the bonsai masters who doesn't need a special introduction. We all know his great books like Vision of My Soul and Mission of Transformation, not to mention all his great masterpieces. 

At this years Noelanders Trophy he made two demonstrations on two Mugo Pines. I can imagine that the demos ware extremely challenging for him, bcs.  Pines are not native species for his environment and as he mentioned it was the first time that he worked on Mugo Pines. But nevertheless he made a great demo and provided lots of great informations about design principles.

It was a pleasure to listen to him and watch him and his assistant Ofer Grunwald working on the trees. Two associations pup in my head in connection with Robert Steven. Passion and dynamic. He and his creations are both passionate and dynamic.
