The photos shown in this page show floral arrangements actually made in the classroom during real lessons at California Flower Art Academy.
Once in a while we use curly materials such as curly willow and grapevines etc. to create a little bit different atmosphere. Namely by way of featuring curly materials, we can make a creative floral arrangement. Curly materials used for such design are not flowers but thin branches or twigs such as curly willows, grapevines or ferns etc. This kind of stuff is often use in Ikebana arrangements. As shown in the photos in this page, both arrangements use curly thin branches that are quite eye catching.
Especially in case of Japanese traditional Ikebana art, floral artists adopt this way of arrangement. After Ikebana became popular outside of Japan, it looks like some of Western style floral artists in America and Europe adopt similar way of designs in their arrangements. In addition to curly elements, Ikebana arrangement often uses curved elements which also create a different atmosphere. Floral artists can appeal the graceful beauty of curved line in their floral arrangements.
