Men's class at Sogetsu Headquarter
(1) Ping, curved and straight lines, rose hip vine and bulrush
After I arranged rose hip vines, I found that bulrush are not strong enough to compete with the curve lines if I try to mix them together. So I put bulrush together upright then bend them to the height of rose hip. I arranged bulrush pretty evenly all around.
critic: grouping bulrush not so evenly. That way, the (negative) space and rhythm are achieved.
(2) Ross, acacia, cock's comb, free style
After saw the Sogetsu Exhibition at Nihonbashi Takashimaya Department Store, he's really inspired. The teacher's critic was very gentle and encouraging. This is Ross' very first ikebana.
