My Ikebana: Linden Branches, No Kenzan

Added on by the ikebana shop.

Sometimes, we prefer to create an arrangement on a suiban (flat container) without using kenzans because we are able to show the beauty and purity of the water without any disruption.

The challenge for making this type of arrangement is putting together a stable frame.  The key is to choose the appropriate branch and set them on 3 legs.  Once the basic structure is secure, then we can add more materials and start having fun with the arrangement!


I used linden tree branches (picked up from the sidewalk!) with pink roses and solidaster.  Here is the whole arrangement.


I hope you like it.  --Miyako
