Ikebana is the Japanese art of flower arrangement.
It is a disciplined art form in which the arrangement is a living thing where nature and humanity are brought together. It is steeped in the philosophy of developing a closeness with nature.
It is more than simply putting flowers in a container. Contrary to the idea of floral arrangement as a collection of mono-colored or multicolored arrangement of blooms, Ikebana often emphasizes other areas of the plant, such as its stems and leaves, and draws emphasis toward shape, line and form.
Another aspect present in ikebana is its employment of minimalism. That is, an arrangement may consist of only one bloom or a minimal number of blooms interspersed among stalks and leaves.
The container is a key element of the composition, and various styles of pottery have traditionally been used in their construction.
Our Ikebana are a modern interpretation of an ancient form.
Size is 6" x 12" x 3".
