Portland Japanese Garden, Portland, OR
What distinguishes ikebana from other approaches to
flower arrangement is its asymmetrical form and the use
of “empty” space as essential features of the
composition. A sense of harmony among the materials, the
container, and the setting is also crucial. Ikebana
shares these aesthetic characteristics with traditional
Japanese paintings, gardens, architecture, and design.
Members of the Seattle Chapter of the Ohara School of
Ikebana set the tone for spring with an array of
exquisite designs on display in the Yanai Classroom.
