Ikebana Scavengers

Ikebana artists are a bit like scavengers, always on the lookout for unusual shapes and textures.

A gnarled old vine from an abandoned vineyard in the Provence is starkly juxtaposed with delicate camellia blossoms.

In this work, rusted iron tractor parts make an excellent support for a fragile cluster of narcissus and calla leaves.

The bark of eucalyptus provides unusual shapes, colors and textures to this creation.
