Ikebana exhibition. Collaboration between Ohara Circle and Johor Green.

An Ikebana Exhibition showing the universal themes of ‘summertime’ like young branching foliage, and also our own seasonal occurrences like the Tembusu flowering season in May and the young green fruits of Rambutan currently on the trees. Living in a region that is one of endless summer, some arrangements also celebrate our more local flora personalities of visible roots, lush growth and colourful foliage. Containers used are earthy, rustic, and organic, some being the ceramic work of Datin Ong Kid Ching, some artisanal baskets from East Malaysia, antique wooden container and some made from found materials.
