My Ikebana: Perpendicular Lines

Added on by the ikebana shop.

For this day's challenge, I had chosen a box-like container and had hoped to show some sort of contrast between the corners of the vase and the curves of branches.  However, on the branches I had available, there were a few stems that would not allow themselves to be curled into submission.  They kept bouncing back!  So I decided to use those stubborn parts to put more focus on the perpendicular lines instead.

I set about cutting away the smaller stems.  I used pink and white alstroemeria to create mass.

Last but not least, I added a branch that connects the flower container to the ground.

Here is the whole arrangement. 

I hope you like it.  --Miyako
