Purple, Pink and Dark Red – Japanese tea bowl Ikebana #2

lilac1

I have been into doing Ikebana using Japanese antique tea bowls lately. My father likes collecting them and He has a lot but seems to get bored of doing that now… They have been abandoned deep in the closet for long time since my sister who used to learn and do tea ceremony moved out… each of them has unique shape, texture and feeling… I really like them and have been thinking about using them as a container of Ikebana… but have hesitated because tea ceremony is one of our traditions that has strict manners…so I thought It could be rude… but I did it anyway:P and am going to do more with all of them:)

Flower:Lilac, Peony and Dahlia

container: Japanese antique tea bowl

茶器にお花を立てるのは無礼になるかな…と思っていたんですけど…前に茶釜に立てたら叱られまして…父が集めた茶器達…茶道をやっていた姉が結婚して実家から離れて以来しばらく放置されていたのですが、最近生け花に使ってます。この前の牡丹と同じようですが、今回はちょっと贅沢に、お花の色を引き立てるように黒っぽい茶器を使い、花台も二重にしてみました。それぞれに味のある茶器たち、かわいいです。

花:ライラック、芍薬、ダリア

花器:茶器
