ikebana study 8/19/11

Summertime, and the living is "lazy."
When I saw three coconuts on sale in a grocery store, they immediately got my attention. I love cool coconut milk. More important, I wanted the coconut shells for my ikebana study. So, when I got home, I carefully poke holes and put straw in, so I can suck the coconut milk and keep the shell intact.
My first attempt to use the shells is to use them as containers. Here is the result.

Material: bamboo split, limonium sinesis
