I arranged totally 6 Ikebana works. I got excited as I could feel the passion and enthusiasm in Ikebana from guests.The most favorite Ikebana for me is work with vase that was created by Italian artist.I wanted to make the most of the original unique texture of the vase, I matched the white fluffy dry materials that I found at a flower market (I don’t know what it is!)

I also love the final Ikebana. I used this vines for the 1st time and I think this is Italian vines. Italian people said they saw this vines usually in countryside. This vines are really common for Italian, not for me. So I felt I could create the fusion between Japan and Italy.

Thank you for reading until the very end!
