April 9,2019 “Ikebena Underwater”
by Leslie Vogt
We will be making an arrangement that is either completely or partially submerged under water in a clear container. It is easier to work on your arrangement if the container has a mouth that is big enough to put your hand into. You may use a kenzan and hide it with plant material, stones, or glass beads. Waxy flowers hold-up the best underwater, but many other types of flowers and plant material will work also. (Waxy flowers might include: Orchids, Anthurium, Roses, Bromeliads, Bird of Paradise, Tiger Lilies, and many colorful leaves, branches, and stems.) Putting part of your materials outside or on top of the container may add interest to the design.
