The large works through the years
This was the large arrangement from the 2009 exhibition, where she said she drew inspiration from the pyramids of Egypt.
For me however, they reminded me of a Japanese garden, with the swept stones, the spare branches with their strong lines, and the chrysanthemums, so ceremonial and sacred to the Japanese.
This water pot from my grandfather's home in Mysore found a new use, in this age of plumbing and electric water heaters!
The tall bamboos topped by elegant swirls was the feature of our 2007 exhibition.
And 2006 saw Sensei Malathi use tall palms in a stylised fashion, with dramatic heliconia, for a tropical garden theme.
My favourites are 2009 and 2007. What are yours?!
