A team work by four of Shunran’s more advanced students. We started the weekly class off by building this wall piece in the classroom. It is supported by a metal wire net structure. We were quite satisfied with the seasonal outcome that takes advantage of┬áboth fresh and dry materials.

Bottle of Dreams

IMG_6851

Ikebana summer course 2013, day 4: Peony in a bottle. The peony was a couple of days old and getting weary,but it was too lovely to be thrown away, so I plucked off the lovely soft petals and put them inside my mother-in-law’s transparent glass bottle, which magnified them just suitably. I then placed the bottle inside another glass container, which I filled with water. Add some material and you get all you need: flower, water, branch. The other flower is a pink hydrangea and the container at the bottom is made of concrete. Did you happen to notice the touch of lichen?
