 Swan Lake Suiban

In Ikebana, the traditional Japanese art of flower arranging, the Moribana style uses a flat tray called "suiban" with water. I actually tried to sculpt individual cherry blossom petals, but after a few stubborn attempts, realized that I was not yet skilled enough to pull this off. I think that a few sakura flowers if arranged just right could be positioned with the tree limbs to resemble a miniature tree - a kind of bonsai effect. The lone mute swan further reinforces the scale and serenity of the traditional Moribana display. My thanks again to the Ceramic Art Studio and Shop.
