June:Flower of the month- Clematis

Arranged by Hiroko Suzuki

At arranging in an open vase, of particular concern is how to finish up smartly in its wide mouth.
Being too preoccupied only with the balance of the flowers and tips of the branches wouldn’t work out right.
Attention should be paid simultaneously to the total balance.
At times training branches a bit and putting into shape is certainly necessary, but more important is keeping in mind nature as it is.
Components of the arrangement: Clematis, Viburnum
Vase: “Sankaku-kumiawase-ki”(=assemblage of triangle) by SAKAEGI Masatoshi
