Enhancing the stone -- bonsai style

Hello everyone! This is my first time to post on this forum and I have a question.

For a couple of years I've been watching a standard nadina that volunteered to grow in a hole in a rock that was sitting near the house. Today I moved the rock with its resident nandina to the graveled portion of my front yard. It had little if any root growing into the soil where it was.

I'd like for it to resemble a bonsai creation. Any ideas if I should wire, trim, twist, or otherwise enhance the looks of the nandina and if so how? Or should I just leave it alone?

Thank you for any and all suggestions!
