Kyokuzuke is a technique of wiring a trunk or branch of a bonsai tree to create an elegant shape. It is also known as Moyozuke, which means making patterns. Kyokuzuke is often used to bend the trunk or branch in a gentle curve or a zigzag pattern, depending on the style and the species of the tree. Kyokuzuke can enhance the appearance and the movement of the bonsai, as well as correct any flaws or defects in the natural growth. Kyokuzuke requires careful attention to avoid damaging the bark or the cambium layer of the tree, which are essential for its health and growth.
