Meaningfully, ikebana is bringing flowers to life and giving them a new lease of life. So when ikebana artists take a flower or other plant from nature and put it in a vase or bowl, they are not just keeping it alive with water, but giving it a new lease of life as part of a work of art, giving it a more beautiful appearance than nature gave it.
Ikebana is the Japanese art of creating an artistic arrangement from a few flowers and branches, which captivates with its simplicity and clarity.
Anyone who is interested can
- learn the design rules and techniques for arranging plants,
- develop its own creativity in the process,
- Finding peace and relaxation by working with plants.
Ikebana arrangements can be
- From anyone
- at any time
- in every place
- with any material
be designed. (Sofu Teshigahara, founder of the Sogetsu School)
