Another great meeting at the Folk Art Center on the Blue Ridge Parkway yesterday. Susan Cano presented a demonstration on "Utilizing Unconventional Materials in Ikebana Designs". One of the things I like about the Sogetsu Schools approach to design has to do with trying to get you to see materials in a completely different way. And I must say, after today's demonstration, I will never look at wire, shredded paper, rope, plastic netting and bangles and beaded pearls the same way again. But that is exactly what art is supposed to do, help us to see our world differently - in a new and refreshing way.
