Akane's Arrangement for January, 2009

Here is Iemoto Akane Teshigahara's arrangement for January 2009. She describes it as follows :

"As one of “Saikansanyu (Three Winter Favorites: pine, bamboo and plum),” bamboo is a key material for festive arrangements. With the smooth bamboo texture and neatened pine and Japanese winterberry branches, it's a very light-looking arrangement. Cattleya inserted at the end makes the point of emphasis."

Yes such a symbolic arrangement for the New Year,it stirs the soul, as it is not a "decoration" nor a "craft",it carries a message, it is poised, balanced, and beautiful, and simple. Malathi.
