My Ikebana: Disassembling Stems

Added on by the ikebana shop.

It is summer and it is green!  I took some wild greens growing on the roadside.  These stems are interesting.  If you look closely enough, you will notice some leaves are flat but others are slightly curled.

I decided to take them apart and re-assemble them to show a climbing motion.  The leaves were plucked carefully because I also wanted to show the calyxes.

The bare stems continue the upward movement of the leaves below.

In the midst of the leaves, I placed on lily something to be found in a treasure-hunt!  The dark pink alstroemeria blooms serves to emphasize the contrast between the cream container and the green leaves.

I hope you like it.  --Miyako
