It has been said that the moon has a special influence on human beeings. Despite research showing no association the belief persists that the full moon effects our minds. It's true that the moon is able to move oceans. It's possible because of the large surface. But the moon has no influence on smaller lakes, and even less the water content in a human body.
Still the moonlight fascinates people, and so do ikebana arrangements in moon vases. The arrangements in this post are modern interpretations of traditional moon arrangements. As in all modern ikebana line and mass, space and volume are important aspects. The flowers and berries should ideally be light in colour - I just couldn't resist the nice contrast created by the strong red against the black vases.
Volume and mass: Dried Larch and Calla.
Vertical lines and mass: Calla, Ishu-ike.
Straight lines and mass: Rowan, Ishu-ike.
That's all from the moon folks! This is the last in a series of posts about moon arrangements.
