Bending a Sylvestris

This is a Sylvestris i have for some years now.
Here was it after a workshop with Pius notter in 2008 i think.



I wasn't really happy with the result so last year in september.
So Mario Komsta and I decided to bend the straight trunk by hollowing it out, put some wire in the hollowed part and put some raffia on the trunk.






Attached a screw in the deadwood for a guywire.
And we bended the trunk.




In the beginning of september i removed the raffia and some wires.
The scar in the back caused by the bending heales perfectly.
And i bended the trunk some little more.







Here are some possible positions for the tree.
And Will Baddeley drawed his beautiful idea out for me.
