Ikebana Workshop at Lorton Workhouse
This past weekend I took a workshop in ikebana. The workshop was at the Lorton Workhouse and was led by Joyce Overholtzer. My reason for taking the workshop was to get a better idea and appreciation for the qualities of vases used for ikebana and floral arrangement. The first day, we made arrangements using shallow forms provided by Joyce. For the second day, we used upright forms. I decided to bring along, and use, two of the kohiki vases I've made. The picture on the left is the upright form; the picture on the right is the slanting form. Hope you enjoy the results. And, the workshop did give me some ideas on form and function to incorporate in future work.
