Ikebana lessons 10/22/2009
(1), (2) Sandy. The first picture shows the shin as the magnolia branch pointing upward. Chinese berries naturally drops as a counter balancing element. When the shin was removed, the dynamic in the arrangement changed. The whole arrangement becomes an horizontal/hanging style. Chinese berries evolve from jushi of Shin in picture (1) to shin itself in picture (2). This is a typical example in ikebana that a small change in composition can make a drastic change in total effect. Pay attention to such changes.

Again, same materials, different arrangements.
(5) Wei. One material (magnolia)
(6) Sandy. Intertwine, queen palm leaves, bouganvilla, iron stand
