For the second time we have participated on Noelanders Thropy exhibition with Mastic tree / Pistacia lentiscus. Bonsai exhibition and overall organization was at high level.
This time demonstrators were William Valavanis and Ryan Neil from the US, Mauro Stemberger from Italy, Vaclav Novak from the Czech Republic and Jorge Campos from Spain. Both days demonstration lasted for 4-5 hours. Mainly we were watching Ryan Neil’s demo and W. Valavanis since they were simultaneously at the same stage. Walter Pall was there as moderator to brake a silence, and put more dynamic in show, by asking questions and explaining whats happening. Ryan Neil is obvious example how the most important thing in bonsai is intensity, dedication to bonsai. It doesn’t meters how long one practice bonsai, title, bloodline, only passion, that can not be performed, or artificially made. Matija Triglav from Slovenia and Michael Fedducia from Florida were assisting to Ryan.
