During his childhood in Switzerland Serge learned in the local woods and fields of nature to see with new eyes. In a book by Peter Adams he saw the first designed bonsai, which he was interest aroused for designed trees. In 1980 he saw on the exhibition in Basel the first true bonsai. He worked reverently an old trees and he quickly realized that he the old tree or the habit should not change the character, but only wanted to optimize the tree made by the guidelines.
Serge tries to his workshops and demonstrations to the participants to always be on their way, which the form of a Yamadori is predetermined by nature and they must learn to subordinate and impose changes to the tree, not their creative will.
Today it is a joy to him, his knowledge to share with other bonsai enthusiasts.http://www.serge-clemence.ch/index.html
