In the hotel reception this glorious and ginormous arrangement appeared. A combination of blossom branches, just beginning to flower and the strikingly bright, coloured twigs. I really liked the boldness of the painted twigs set amongst the dainty and pretty blossom branches.
Created by Hiroki Maeno artist (born 1970) Master instructor of the Sogetsu school.
A skilful arrangement described by those who know as transcending the boundaries of ikebana.
Pleased to share this with you and Cathy.
I am certain I could not create such a skilful arrangement or anything remotely of this scale and anyway it would not fit through the front door. That said, I love the use of brightly coloured twigs and blossom branches.
Have a great week wherever you are. D.

I remember those spectacular arrangements in hotels – and sometimes there were sweet simpler arrangements on side tables. So much beauty to see.
That is an amazing creation, and ‘in the flesh’ even more so, I imagine. I think we can guess where you might be and I hope you are having a wonderful time 😊
Love it, thank you for sharing.
Gorgeous. Enjoy yourself.
It looks more old fashioned to me, like something from the 1980s. I remember such big arrangements in the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose, when it was still new. They tend to be more open and airy now, with more weirdly exotic flowers. I really like the forsythia here, even if some people think they are common.
