Jellyfish Ikebana was inspired by the Japanese art of flower arrangement. Like Carnivora Floret and Bloom & Decay. the piece was similarly inspired by Dutch still lifes. The composition marries elements of the ocean with delicate floral arrangements.

Peonies and chrysanthemums blow to mimic the inner plumage of the jellyfish developing into fine vines and budded flowers which extend to form the tentacles.

The creature was set atop a black background to accentuate the negative space that the Ikebana technique is famous for.
