My blogger friend Christopher in Australia posted two articles on ikebana that I'd like to share with you. The articles focuses on two elements that distinguish ikebana from Western flower arranging: The creation of space and the emphasis on asymmetry.
Both articles can be read online:
- 'A Comparison between Asymmetric Japanese Ikebana and Symmetric Western Flower Arrangement' by Marie Moriyama and Megumi Moriyama.
- '10 design lessons from the art of ikebana' by Garr Reynolds.
