Christine de Beer - effortless floral craftsman
Lyrics of the song “I have a dream” by ABBA December 1979
Tie a bundle of lily grass in a bundle to offer support for your flowers.
Komiwara is a classic and traditional Ikebana technique used in a Rikka design. Designers would usually bundle straw to keep the flowers in place.
Multiple tiny twigs create a flower frog to keep the delicate buds and leaves in the exact spot you want.
Design in two levels by using two vases, the smaller slipped into a bigger one.
I would definitely describe my own personal style as minimalist classic... but with an edgy twist.
A simple placement of bud vases... with the tiniest of lemon coloured twist that makes them unusual.
