Ikebana is quite different from the work being done by your local FTD florist. It’s a journey that leads to inner stillness, transcending the sensory beauty of the flowers themselves.
Ikebana aims not at bringing a finite piece of nature into the house, but rather at suggesting the whole of nature, by creating a link between the indoors and the outdoors. This is why arrangers are likely to use several different types of plants in a single arrangement, and to give prominence to leaves and flowerless branches as well as blossoms. Even when a single type of flower is used, an attempt is made to bring out its full implications as a symbol of nature.
Ikebana is a highly spiritual, meditative art form. Each arrangement is inspired by you!
Growing up in the Philippines, fresh-cut flowers always brightened my home and now fills some of my sweetest childhood memories. For me, flowers have a calming effect and are a great companion!
Flower arranging was part of my nursing training in the Philippines and the focus was Ikebana. Taking care of people spiritually was just as important as tending to their physical needs and there was no better way to lift a spirit, brighten a mood or console a broken heart than an inspired arrangement. Having moved to America, served in the US Air Force, and worked as a Registered Nurse for 20+ years, my inspiration continues to be creating art through flowers.
This style brings such intriguing arrangements as well as an appreciation of Mother Nature. While Ikebana emphasizes minimalism, angles, and short / wide vases, I recognize many of you would prefer a good ole traditional arrangement, and we are happy to deliver – and each of those arrangements will be inspired with the same meditation and care.
