Ikebana 4/22/2015

IMG_7745_convert_20150424083705.jpg

I had composed this arrangement of Double Cherry Blossoms (八重桜), Anthurium (アンスリウム), and Dracaena Godseffiana (ドラセナゴッドセフィアナ).

To tell the truth, while I was arranging these flowers, the taller anthurium's (the pink big flower) stem was broken because I wanted to make the stem curve by my hands. Besides, the head of the anthurium came off by accident.
Since the taller anthurium had an important role and there was no substitute for it, my teacher taught me how to fix them.

As for the broken stem, at first I had wrapped it with a green tape, but it was broken again soon. I then attached a thin stem of godseffiana to the part of broken stem of anthurium and fixed both ends with green wire to support the broken part. The attached thin stem should be behind the anthurium's stem not to be seen.

Next, as for the head of anthurium which had come off, I stuck into the stem of head part with the end of a straightend paper clip (I cut it for the appropriate length), and I then stuck into the long stem with the other end of the clip to connect with them. The reason why I used a paper clip was stronger than the usual wire for arranging flowers. Finally, I wrapped the part with a green tape.

It was good to learn in case I had a trouble on an arrangement.

I had composed this arrangement of Double Cherry Blossoms (八重桜), Anthurium (アンスリウム), and Dracaena Godseffiana (ドラセナゴッドセフィアナ).

To tell the truth, while I was arranging these flowers, I had broken the stem of the taller Anthurium (the pink big flower) because I had wanted to curve it by hand. Also, the head of the Anthurium had accidentally come off.
Since the taller Anthurium had an important role in the arrangement, and there was no substitute available, my teacher taught me how to repair it.

As for the broken stem, I had, at first, wrapped it with green tape, but it soon broke again. I then attached a thin stem of Godseffiana to the broken stem of the Anthurium and fixed both ends with green wire to support the broken part. The attached thin stem is behind the Anthurium's stem, and is designed to be hidden.

As for the head of Anthurium which had come off, I had stuck the end of a straightened paper clip through the stem of the separated head (I had cut it to the appropriate length), and I then had stuck it into the long stem to connect them. The reason I used a paper clip, instead of the usual wire used for arranging flowers, is that it is stronger. Finally, I wrapped the damaged portion with green tape.

It was good to learn how to repair broken stems and separated flowers in case of future troubles during an arrangement.

Hello, Shiroi Tora.

Thank you very much for the corrections as always.
Here, in Hokkaido, cherry blossoms are very beautiful now.
