Ikebana Exhibition at TAC/NE- My arrangements(3)

This year's Ikebana program at TAC/NE, I had two pieces of arrangement. One for exhibition, the other one was demonstration piece. I also helped out for stage decoration.  
1) My large arrangement: "Rustic Beauty" is the title.
Material: Azalea, Sunflower, Cornflower head, Yarrow, Arborvitae and a piece of lichen covered branch ( I found it from a dead tree). A piece of wood trunk for base.
Container: Africa wood crafted container. 
2) My demonstration piece: Using both fresh and unconventional materials
Material: Plastic file cover (cut in triangle shape to echo the container), Solomon seal, Sunflower and vine. The vine softens the shape of container and show some movement. I purposely selected color contrast with purple plastic and yellow sunflower.
Container: Triangular ceramic vase with three holes.
I felt a little bit challenge to arrange this triangle vase from behind. To do a demonstration, you should have a teacher's certificated paper, and you should stand behind, face the audiences to do the arrangement.
