Winter is Melting Away


At last spring is on the horizon, after a bit of snow yesterday(and a snowstorm that thankfully never came to fruition). Today was perfect to revisit my Sogetsu Ikebana lesson from this past Monday’s class, works with ice. The lesson was fun, but I wanted to try it again and get a better result. For the class I tried to sick to using only materials in shades of blue with a bit of black willow branches thrown in. It just needed some contrast, so today I used a single blue hyacinth with some pink apricot branches to lighten it up a bit. The ice made me think of the last gasp of winter, and the spring flowers to come.

    I’ve been doing a lot of research on Dutch flower paintings lately. Love them!

    It was a silicone bundt cake pan, really easy to use for making ice forms. It took a while to melt but I had it in a cool area. I used it earlier in a class and it melted fast, however I did not fill up the silicone form so it was rather thin.
