February: Flower of the month – White Magnolia

Arrangged by Hiroko Suzuki

Magnolia is one of the plants hard to train.
Arranging in a slender vase with a small opening, here is a tip to help you: Pull up the stem of the  previously placed one and gently insert it back again accompanying the second stem, with a sense of as if you exhale.
Try several times and you will get the idea of how.
However, don’t be too much caught up with the technic, the total visual balance comes first.
Won’t the arrangement here remind you of a caring couple ?!


Materials arranged: Magnolia, Camellia
Vase: “Kuro Ichirinzashi” by ANZAI Kenta
