Big Ikebana work at Japanese WAGASHI shop, TORAYA, in Ginza
TORAYA is a famous Japanese confection shop that has a long history, opened at 1937 in Kyoto. Ginza shop is a headquarter of all branches now and I feel honored to arrange my Ikebana work here.
Height is about 6.6 feet, so a huge work.
When I thought about February, the beautiful yellow of Golden Bells occurred to my mind. I’d like to express the complimentary color effect, so I painted the old branches with purple.
This is a side view.
I used a lot of orchid ( dancing lily orchid) to emphasize the yellow and purple effect.
I go to the shop every 2 days to check and rearrange my Ikebana. I changes all materials every week, so I make a slightly different arrangement though I use completely same materials.
Golden bells got full bloom in this photo.
I’d like to introduce some of my Ikebana pieces that I arranged recently.
If you can see more photos, here is my Ikebana photo album. I uploaded more than 300 works. Please check it up!
