Wind path / 風の通り道


Like martial arts, Ikebana also has “Kata (basic forms)”. This arrangement style is called “Jiyubana”, literally means “Free style arrangement”. However, “Free style” doesn’t mean “arranging flowers blindly”. It is very important to think about overall image of the work before hand; length and angle of flowers, branches, stems. Balance between flowers and vase. Also, spacing.

In that sense, Ikebana is very mathematical art.

武道に「型」があるように、いけばなにも「型」はある。 この作品は自由花だが、「自由=闇雲に活ける」ことではない。
