My Ikebana: Overflow

Added on by the ikebana shop.

One of the themes in the new Sogetsu textbook #5 is "Composition expressing a movement."   From a list of "action" words, we have to choose one and express it in our ikebana.  For this arrangement, I chose to focus on the word "overflow".

in a top-heavy container, gypsophilia were arranged to look like they were bursting out and forming a mass at the container's opening.  The red dogwood and myrtle branches seem to be carried to somewhere far away by the flow.

Here is the whole arrangement.

I hope you like it.  --Miyako
