Use of unconventional materials

Unconventional materials means anything non-botanical, or anything inorganic. Sogetsu school's motto is arranging using any materials (in any situation, at any time). Book 4 lesson 11 is the fun lesson, yet, the most challenging lesson in all curriculum.
Our Sogetsu study group meets today. The theme is use of unconventional materials. I agreed to talk about it and do a short demo. It's a truly challenge.

Material: flexible straws

lotus seed pods

Found lotus seed pods at Mayesh (flower shop), but they don't have lotus leaves. This is the best I can do. Love lotus. 出污泥而不染。(Grow in the mud but not contaminated.)
