Ikebana

Definition: Ikebana

Ikebana is the art of Japanese flower arranging. It was introduced to Japan in the sixth century by Chinese Buddhist missionaries. Ikebana is based on harmony of simple linear construction and appreciation of the subtle beauty of flowers and natural materials, including branches and stems. Rules that govern the formal schools of Ikebana include dictating the height of stems, types of containers, and placing stems at certain angles.

Craft magazine has a great article on Ikebana explaining everything in detail from craft author Brookelynn Morris. Check out her article here.

I took a floral design class once, and this was my favorite arrangement to make. It takes a lot of thought before even picking up a flower.
