Amazing!

So, after a good day on the boat things gets better when Tomomi san comes over to make an ikebana piece for me. She is a master. That does not sound right but she is a mistress sounds worse. Let’s say she is astoundingly good.

She only has one big leaf and some ferns. She rustles around my plates and things and comes up with an idea. She builds a structure in one of my Yachimun plates and starts bending leaves and ferns with great certainty and rapidity.

Only the beginning
Taking shape.
More ferns

It is a privilege to watch her work. She moves fast with great dexterity. If you or I did it, it would all fall apart, leaving a pile of leaves and ferns. She has an understanding of structure.

Finished.
Different angle
A few leaves and ferns

The whole process took 15 minutes. Thank you Tomomi san. You are amazing. Check her work at https://www.instagram.com/imomofolio/

Then we ate lamb chops and cauliflower.

    Good lass, that Tomomi. Can she also do wonders with a plate of cauliflower? Lamb chops sound great but rather surprising – are they a big thing in Okinawa?
