365 Days of Ikebana-Day 197

Yesterday I made my return to my Saga Goryu ikebana classes after missing a few classes during December. The shogonka arrangement I posted yesterday was from our class lesson, and we had intended to do a second lesson (inoribana) but ran out of time. So today I thought it would be fun to try doing inoribana or “prayer flowers” arrangement that we did not do in class on my own. This ikebana is meant to evoke an image of hands clasped in prayer, and I hope the piece I created portrays that.

    Interesting. It looks like you have used more sand in the bowl than one would usually do in a moribana. Is there a water surface over the sand or is the water just down in the sand?

    There is a lot of water in this bowl, just below the surface of the pebbles.
