Floral Exhibition, Sakhalin island, April 2011 - Ikebana

>>  4/26/2011

Flowers of Sakhalin 2011, the 4th International Festival of Floristics and Ikebana art has been taken in April 2011 in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk.

Florists and Ikebana masters from Russia's Far East and Hokkaido, Japan joined together to make the festival dedicated to the 50th anniversary of Yury Gagarin's flight into space. 

There were several sections of the festival:
Ikebana Sogetsu exhibition 
Floristic contest
Green Eco-Fashion Show 

I took a part into Ikebana exhibition with my Carving and Ikebana project called "Reflection".
Ikebana with fruit and vegetables is called Morimono.
