ikebana study 9/4/10

(1) Curly willow
I bought medium size curly willow last week. The top part of fine curly branches were used by students in class. The bottom thick parts were left. I try to use whatever left over from the class. Hate to just throw them away.
In this arrangement, no wires were used.

(2) Ti leaves
2 pieces of Ti leaves were left from last week also. Ti leaves were cut into pieces. 3 fine sticks were pierced through, and small wax flowers were filled in between leaves.

  1. Nice work Ping. The willow sticks makes a great composition. Giving new life to leftovers is a wonderful thing to do.
