Another experimental piece.
I think flower vases that are heads etc. are very amusing. One day, I'm going to try one. But in the meantime, I thought I'd try shoulders first.
Rather tricky, constructing something that is so constricted and narrow, but I like the result. I have yet to put anything in it.
Years ago when I lived in Japan, I earned 3 certificates from the Sogetsu School of Ikebana in Tokyo.
My class were able to go to the headquarters of Sogetsu to see a fabulous show that included a giant rain-forest log arrangement.
It was about 15 feet long. Absolutely stunning. Sogetsu style is an avant guard approach to ikebana. Well, tackling a log would give you a clue.
