Elegant Potatoes

Scallions with savoy cabbage, mini aubergine and fingerling potatoes.

This will be the last ikebana arrangement in this weeks fruit and vegetable series. Slightly curved, elegant lines in black and green, and a mass of yellow potatoes. The materials are fixed with wire.

As my sensei pointed out it would have been great if the potatoes had grown sprouts. That would really have added the fun and interesting extra touch to the arrangement. As it is, it's quite close to being a traditional morimono arrangement and maybe not so much as a sculptural freestyle. Either way, I like the elegant black and green emphasized by this tall Japanese vase. The fingerling potatoes are nice this way too.

Who says you can't play with your food? I hope you have enjoyed the results of my excursions in the grocery store. That's all for now.
