My Ikebana: Showing Water

Added on by the ikebana shop.

I use a simple glass container to show purity of water.

Inside, statice stems are arranged in a horizontal manner to contrast against the long, tall cylindrical vase.

A small mass of statice blooms is created not only on the inside but also on the outside to keep the arrangement a bit off-balanced.  (How does the statice mass stay in place?  Secret revealed below!)

Here is the whole arrangement.  

I hope you like it.  --Miyako


Here is the secret to affixing the blooms at the top of the container: Plastic kenzans!  They have suction cups to keep them in place.
