Intricate Bonsai Trees out of Wire

Monday 02.11.2013 , Posted by


After becoming a bonsai enthusiast, Ken To decided to give his wife a unique gift for Christmas: a bonsai tree made out of wire. His wife loved the gift and was impressed by what Ken could do with wire. It wasn’t for another three years that Ken made his second wire bonsai tree, again for his wife. Soon Ken learned how to make the foliage of his wire trees an easier process, and upon acquiring some specialized wire, he started making more of his bonsai trees.

Initially, he sold his little trees for next to nothing on eBay. Yet, as his skill at the art grew, he started receiving more money for his work. His collection of trees can be found on eBay and Rondai. Follow Ken and his work on Facebook .
