Hello friends! In this new post I will be giving an overview on the 2nd 3D project: Gaia’s Ikebana! Now I wasn’t at the 2nd lesson where most of the guidelines were given but I did know that I had to combine the shapes of a cone, sphere and a cylinder while incorporating the themes of food, a particular season, and ikebana, Japanese traditional flower arrangement. The season I got was spring!
I needed to be able to find food that fit the theme of spring while fulfilling the shapes of a cone, cylinder and a sphere. I thought narrowing down the food to Japanese themed spring food would be more suitable since we were also bringing ikebana into the mix!
Japanese Spring Cabbage
Japanese Spring Potato
Japanese seaweed seems to be more of a staple food rather than a spring food, but I thought it would tie in nicely with my idea for a cone, as cone shaped food is really hard to find, so I thought of making a cone out of something flat and flexible instead.
