For this arrangement, I used a very unusual "container". It is an old ashtray made of nambu iron (the same type used for the cast iron teapots.) I found this ashtray in a flea market in Tokyo. Though I didn't smoke, I saw its potential to become a flower container!
I wanted to show the fine intricacies of the tiny branches so I made the arrangement short and horizontal so that the viewer may have a closer look. I also tried to show the "feet" of the snapdragon stems coming out of the container. It adds a little vertical component to contrast the very horizontal nature of the arrangement.
Here is the whole arrangement.
I hope you like it. --Miyako
