My Ikebana: Swirling Eucalyptus

Added on by the ikebana shop.

The idea to twist eucalyptus branches round and round came from the shape of the container.  I thought of using only the heart-shaped one.

When I finished, I felt the arrangement uncomfortably incomplete.

So I expanded the work using the second container.

I used the single aspidestra leaf embedded in the eucalyptus swirls to create a connection with the second container.

Also with the help of hydrangea blossoms, the arrangement with two containers was now a unity.

Hope you like it.  --Miyako
