April: Flower of the month-White flowerMansaku

Arranged by Hiroko Suzuki

Arranged by Hiroko Suzuki

Originally flowers were arranged to appreciate the vessels.

The purpose of which was to make the charm of the vessels to its full appeal.

The cubic vessel like a lump of remaining snow with its cracked opening, allows the sweet Christmas rose to reveal itself with its bashful smile out from it.

Sending my heart out to the creator of the artistic piece, I arrange the flowers to fit the vessel,

making full use of its refreshing liberal stem line.

Yes, as you see, the gentleness of the white blossoms of the Japanese witch hazel go well with the Christmas rose.

Materials: White flower Mansaku, the Japanese witch hazel and Christmas rose
