|Coloured mulberry branch, strelitzia reginae and|
New Zealand flax
You may remember the above mulberry branch from the exhibition piece I did for the Sogetsu annual exhibition in November. It was easier to create a new wall arrangement than to try and find a place to store such a large branch. So, here it is. And it has undergone a number of transformations with the replacement of flowers and leaves as they die. It is still on the wall with mauve hydrangeas for flowers.
Catching up on some of the work done in class, here are some of the arrangements with the theme - 'To be viewed from above'.
|My arrangement using canna lily leaves, hiippeastrums and the stem of a palm leaf|
that was lying around
|Vicky used gymea leaves and roses|
|Aurelia used the leaves and flower from her banksia tree and hydrangeas|
|Bredenia used acacia aphylla, proteas and scabiosas|
|Lucy used large loquat leaves and green Goddess lily|
And another couple of arrangements I did with materials that were lying around in my ikebana room and for which I could not be bothered finding storage.
|This agave was used in a previous arrangement and had|
partially dried. What was left, I could not throw away, so I created
this arrangement with ornithogalum
|A showcase for my peones, which were quite prolific this year (finally!)|
I, initially, was going to remove the petals that fell but I changed
my mind, as I thought they were quite charming.
Bye for now,
