In a Suiban without Kenzan

Materials: Dried  branches, carnation,,mum and baby breath.
Container: Triangle ceramic suiban (made by Chih)
From different angle

The whole structure to be securely in place without Kenzan  was today's class.  Therefore, I choose  the shape of triangle container for this arrangement because the shape, the colors and the texture of the Suiban will be present in the composition. The way of  fixing may be different depending on the overall structure of the arrangement.  (1-20-15)

It was a challenge to make a arrangement with two or more kinds flowers only. Here were our arrangements today in the class. Each of them were so created and beautiful.
My container was a bit small for the arrangement after critics, the solution was add a object to extend the length to look bigger for the container. (1-20-15)
