Living Flowers

We created Ikebana inspired arrangements.
Ikebana or ‘living flowers’ is the Japanese art of flower arrangement.

  • The tradition can be traced to the 7th century when floral offerings were made at altars. Later, they were placed in the ‘tokonoma an alcove of the home.
  • More than simply putting flowers in a container, Ikebana is a disciplined art form in which nature and humanity are brought together.  The emphasis is  on shape, line and form.
  • Another common is its employment of minimalism. Some arrangements may consist of only a minimal number of blooms interspersed among stalks and leaves.
  • The structure of some Japanese flower arrangements is based on a triangle shown by three main points considered in some schools to symbolize heaven, human and earth..
