This ikebana arrangement is composed of fruits and vegetables.
The Japanese name for such a settlement is ‘Morimono‘ 森モノ .
Morimono is a basic style of ikebana arrangements made with fruit and (or) vegetables as the main material. The composition is about arranging positions and combinations of materials to bring out their unique qualities.
The used materials in this arrangement are a whole pomegranate, a whole lemon and a few leaves of red cabbage.
The color combination of the pomegranate with red cabbage makes a stimulating combination.
The lemon adds sparkle.
This was the first time Desiree used the new black wooden container. It looks like a moon.
In this arrangement you can see that flowers are not necessary to make a marvelous composition.
Morimono with a flower in addition
Recently Desiree made another Morimono and this time with a flower.
She used a 2 pomegranates again, with a pear-shaped pumpkin, a white onion, 3 black potatoes and 3 lychees.
The flower in the front is a white amaryllis.
