Hunt for branches and make a flower arrangement
In this weeks video, I hunt for branches for a flower arrangement. What kind of branches am I looking for? What is a good shape?
Find ideas about shapes, structure and more.
Finally, I make a simple flower arrangement. Just an arrangement to inspire you to make one yourself. The vase is from Mobach ceramics in Utrecht the Netherlands.

If you love watching (flower) videos online, I will invite you to my YouTube channel. Tune in each week to Ikebana Beautiful to learn more about the arts of flower arranging.
This is the video on how to make a cross bar fixture:
A cross bar fixture is a simple method intended to direct and support plant materials. In this week’s video, you learn how to make a cross bar fixture (Jumonji-dome) in your ikebana container by using just two thick stems or thin branches.
The material used for your cross bars should be as straight as possible and in proportion to the size of the container and the material used in your arrangement. Normally I use Cornus for this kind of stems, it is a straight and flexible material.
