Magnolia, aspidistra and ornamental hay. A freestyle ikebana piece where I combined dark elements and light colours. The main satisfaction, however, arose from the rare possibility to use this precious spring flower as material in Finland where these flowers aren’t often available. The petals areincredibly soft and smooth, like skin.
