Here are a few final photos from the Ikebana show that I talked about the other day. As I wrote then, the works are just lined up on folding tables right in front of unappealing backdrops, so it's not a great situation for photography....

Nevertheless, here are some shots showing a variety of ikebana works and details. Not all are my cup of tea, but I like many of them....

The thought and attention to detail in these exhibits is superb. As a designer I find them inspiring, particularly the semi circular/ black design and the one with seven bamboo tubes which looks better as five in your image. Great set of photos.

Could you post more photographs of things like tea cups, plates, fountains? I am so Japanese curious and your blog gives me a sense of what it must be like to be in Japan.
