Flowers and Ikebana

Sticks and Stone

After doing my special lessons one Tuesday afternoon, I was about to throw my leftover materials when my sensei asked me to make another one. I was left with some Horsetail grass and a bunch of white Mums. It took me a while before I was able to come up with a design. And since I already used the vases I brought, I needed to borrow one from my friend (We are doing the special lessons in her house.). Horsetail grass is a good material in creating shapes and lines. And after a few minutes, I was having fun playing with it!

My container is a blue ceramic vase with a small opening. I used it to imitate a rock. Then I made different shapes using the grass as a contrast to the heavy stone. The white mums were placed on complement the colors of vase and the sticks.
