A festival of instructive British Ikebana populates this website for the coming week, starting with this abject lesson in the appeal of contrast. Here, a macho copper bullet vase by TOM DIXON is shown to best advantage with the quite fruity LYSIMACHIA or CREEPING JENNY. There’s a bit of LAVENDER in there too. Also recommended is the addition of a FOXTAIL LILY or two, which will curl and change shape as the week wears on. If you’re lucky.
