This is a simple Ikebana arrangement. You can see a beautiful floral art using Suiban
that are popular items when making Ikebana arrangement. Petals of flowers are pink and yellow in addition to which green elements are used. Beautiful color coordination is impressive.
In order to make this kind of Ikebana arrangement, it is essential to use above mentioned Suiban and Kenzan. Kenzan is a frog pin (needlepoint holder to hold flowers) and Suiban is a shallow type container. These are mandatory items for making what is called "Moribana
Students who learn Ikebana usually start from practicing Moribana because they are considered easy arrangement. We have another popular type of Ikebana arrangement called "Nageire
" that are practiced by more experienced students because they are considered more difficult than Moribana. Nageire generally uses a tall vase in which fresh elements must be arranged by firmly keeping the right position of each element without using floral foam ("Oasis" which is mandatory item for European and American style arrangement for holding flowers in a vase).
Therefore Ikebana artists must make simple "tools" such as crossbars and stoppers etc by using hard stems or narrow twigs for holding flowers in the right position inside a tall vase, which is a little bit difficult for people who are not skillful or lacking practice.
As seen from above, Ikebana arrangement MAY be more difficult than regular flower designs such as European or American style arrangements. In addition to how to use tools for holding flowers, Ikebana is arranged according to a profound concept. Unless the designer clearly understands the concept behind the arrangement, it is difficult to make a true arrangement, which is another difficult point.
