The structure for the design above was created using flax leaves.
Above is a design with a painted palm frond over a vase with tulips, lilies and babies breath.
This design was created by using bamboo shoots and tying the branches together and then spray painting them black and gold.
To avoid using tape or a flower frog, Katsuko used bamboo shoots and split them on the bottom to form a closepin-like shape. She then tied the branches together to create a grid and stuck a bundle of tulips in the grid.
In this design, she french braided bear grass and slipped it over a cylinder-shaped container.
This design has bamboo tied together and also red dogwood branches tied into loops.
This was my favorite. I love the orchids and the silver. This is another design with spray painted palm fronds placed on a cylindrical vase.
To get the lines on this frond, she painted them black and then peeled parts of the frond off.
This design used willow branches coiled up and tied together. This was another of my favorites.
