This sweet Japanese vase was brought home to me today by Frederick, so I had to use it right away. It has a great white glaze with some greenish spots, whiich led to my use of green(pine needles) and white(hellebore) to match the vase colors. The pine needles are used as the mechanics to hold the hellebore in place. Many thanks to Frederick for keeping me inspired with the lovely vases he takes the time to find for me!
