Here in Spilimbergo, cherries and magnolias blossom and just on time my interpretation of Ikebana was finished!
I have worked on the individual parts of the mosaic made of smalts and ceramic separately and in different heights. Only afterwards, I assembled all the different pieces.
We filled the joints of the flowers and the background with self-leveling compound (usually used in interiors for levelling and smoothing differences of pavements). The result is a beautiful flat surface and a very clean look that fits great to the plain beauty of the Japanese arrangement.
One of the most beautiful projects so far at school due to its simplicity and experimental approach!
