I’ve been enjoying learning about Ikebana and making Ikebana vases primarily for the Ikenobo and Ohara School of Ikebana. There are many schools of Ikebana, and these two are the oldest. The graceful forms have been a challenge to make, but as I explore the shapes, I learn much about how they offer flowers in their best presentation. What distinguishes Ikebana from simpler decorative approaches are its asymmetrical form and the use of “empty” space as an essential feature of the composition. I’m inspired by the use of space and movement in the arrangements.
