Styling Dawn Redwood

You don't really see too many Dawn Redwood bonsais, and when you do it seems they're all formal uprights or upright group plantings. Well, I went and bought one and now I'm wondering if there's any other style that it would be suitable for. I know that redwoods tend to err on the brittle side, so I'm guessing cascade is out of the question. What about semicascade or literati? any ideas?

Have you considered buying some more, and/or even airlayering parts of yours and starting a little forest? You could also think about a slightly windswept style and the literati is a good idea, but I would forget cascades.
