Floral Ikebana arrangement with Thai spirit

Happy to share my floral arrangement made for the latest Ikebana show in Yuzhno city.

This arrangement is special to me because there is a story and a memory behind it. The arrangement is a complex of three different cultures as Japanese (Ikebana art), Thai (fruit carving and Thai lantern) and Russian (my personality and my mind). It is a mix of minds, it's a path I enjoy to walk now.

In this arrangement I've focused on the Thai component. Together with the carved apples I have used a Thai lantern with a Bodhi tree. I brought this lantern from Bangkok when I was on carving art study in Malisa school. In the arrangement, the lantern is a symbol of Thai, it is a temple of Thai. It is a temple of ART. More, we show our souls by arts.  I want visitors to feel this deep message.

Our teacher and a head of Sakhalin Ikebana School Mrs.Alexandra Kudryashova came to Sakhalin from Sochi (where Alexandra-sensei is residing now) to make the show. Was so great to study and to work with our beloved teacher again.

Fruit Art. Apple Panda Tutorial

>>  6/10/2015

Dear friends,

Hope you are enjoying the summer time and good things are coming your way this season.
As for me, I became a media person and time to time I am on TV and news timelines here and there with fruit carving, ikebana and even more activities :)

I remember about my blog activity too. So a new short PDF  tutorial is ready to be downloaded.
"Fruit Art. Panda" tutorial is a lesson from the complete guide "Cute Fruit Sculptures For Children".

The panda sculpture is made with red apples and some grapes using an orange knife. Though it requires some knife skills it is OK for beginners to start with and to do a wow-effect.
