February:Arrangement of the month-Catalpa

Arranged by Hiroko Suzuki

Catalpa, preferred by many tea masters for its wabi atmosphere fit  for  tearoom,
is often arranged in December with camellia or winter chrysanthemum.

I have deliberately arranged to bring out the light emitted from the wabi atmosphere.
Small pale flowers set on a chubby spherical form of the bulb …

Be somewhat bold with the total volume.
A sense of unity with the container will even more bring about an artistic impact on the arrangement.

Components of the arrangement: Catalpa, grape hyacinth
