“Ikebana is an art of space,
the space between branches flowers and leaves.
This space is a plentiful void
projecting tension and energy.”
These words of Sofu Teshigahara, founder of the modern Sogetsu School of Ikebana, beautifully capture the essence of the art form.
From its ancient classical roots as flower offerings on Buddhist shrines to its modern abstract expressions, Ikebana’s focus is upon creating space that is at the same time both vibrant and tranquil.
Our mission at Hana Design Ikebana is to provide experiences of this art in varied and interesting ways.
