Ikebana is the Japanese art of arranging flowers. More than being decorative, ikebana is thought of as a path of life or a kind of meditation.
I'm studying Ikebana with the Sogetsu school, and currently I hold a teachers certificate of Sankyu Shihan (teacher, third grade). My flower name is Senju 泉樹.

"Ikebana is the art of space - the space between branches, the space between flowers and leaves and the space between masses. In other words, the space between the branches and flowers comes alive. This space is a plentiful void projecting tension and power."
"I regard myself as a creator of shape who uses mainly flowers as his metier, rather than purely as an arranger of flowers."
“Ikebana is a form of sculpture that exists only within a limited time span, transforms from moment to moment, then perishes.”
