Sogetsu Ikebana Demo

I was so lucky to watch an ikebana demonstration at Glorietta Mall in Makati City, Philippines last October. It was so impressive to watch these ladies and gentlemen come up with their own creative arrangements. I love Japanese culture. I am interested to learn ikebana. Wikipedia defines ikebana as “the Japanese art of floral arrangement.”

The designs were arranged according to different color schemes. Here are some of my favorites, and their corresponding artists’ names:

Doing ikebana was challenging. The artists are doing their best to ensure that their works of art remain standing up during the entire demonstration. They all came up with creations that revealed their unique personalities. I hope I can find an ikebana organization that I can join. I am interested to learn ikebana like them.
