Kyuka-en x Riso kiln(Arita ware) "allusion of Sho-chiku-bai"
Sho-chiku-bai(pine, bamboo and apricot) is
a Japanese symbol of auspiciousness and
I adopted variegated bamboo grass last year.
But I think it dull to swich bamboo to bamboo grass and
I try implying bamboo by dwarf rough horsetail
with bamboo-node-like sections,
in seeking for Japanese sophistication to avoid direct expression.
By the way, looking at the last year's photo,
I wonder why I put them like that.
The pine and the apricot face the opposite direction...
