"Giving life to flowers"
the creation of a beautiful tradition brings a promise for the future…
We hear the silent movement of plants. Words unspoken of flowers and we interpret their form
in the creation of Ikebana. Like a poem or a flower painting, Ikebana expresses the beauty of the flowers and the blooming love in our hearts. In
the practice of Ikebana it is important to show
the character of each plant closely observing
their intrinsic nature, trying to avoid merely representing their superficial appearance.
