IKEBANA

July 2015
Japan Expo 2015 - Paris, France

For the Japan Expo 2015, Ikebana artist Kenji Tsutsumi and myself collaborated on a short series of floral arrangements. The vases I made were used by Kenji who presented two styles of Ikebana (Japanese art of floral arrangement) during the event.

 

Sanshu-Ike (pic.1) highlights the minimalism of the arrangement, while Shajitsu Moriban (pic.2) places the fundamental techniques of this ancestral floral art at the core of the piece.
