congratulations on a beautiful exhibition! i especially like the last one with the three vases. i love how the materilas are converging together in the open space above the containers. very beautiful!

Thanks Stephen for a beautiful description of the open space. Sogetsu teaches that although ikebana means arranging plant materials it is really about arranging space. I'm glad you like it.
