Overview

Keiko's Ikebana: A Contemporary Approach to the Traditional Japanese Art of Flower Arranging by Keiko Kubo

Keiko's unique approach to ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arranging, combines traditional techniques with modern tastes. Her influences—which range from sculpture to today's Western floral styles—come together to create one-of-a-kind arrangements that are authentic and eye-catching, simple and graceful, and possible for anyone to achieve. This book presents step-by-step instructions for creating 20 stunning ikebana arrangements in a range of sizes and styles. Each arrangement is completed in just three simple steps and uses easy-to-find floral materials and containers. The book also includes an introduction to the history of ikebana, as well as a guide to the basic rules of ikebana design and floral techniques. Suggestions for finding and choosing materials and supplies make it easy to get started.
