In ikebana, water not only serves as a means to sustain the flowers. Water in itself is usually an integral part of the arrangement. Arrangements using suiban (flat containers) without kenzan allow us to appreciate the beauty and clarity of the water more precisely because it there is no kenzan to distract us!
This arrangement uses wisteria branches to create the structure. Chrysanthemum and eryngium add colour and character.
Here is the whole arrangement.
I hope you like it. --Miyako
