Holiday Cinema 3: Ikebana Flower Arrangement - Kasumi Teshigahara

This 20-minute TV documentary from Japanese NHK World features a step-by-step demonstration by Kasumi Teshigahra, 2nd iemoto of the Sogetsu school. She gives a beautiful and easy to follow demonstration of how to work with Moribana arrangements in shallow containers and Nagiere arrangements in a tall vase. The styles she shows are Moribana basic upright style and Nageire upright variation no. 2.

Kasumi Teshigahara, the daughter of and successor to Sofu, started her career as an ikebana artist after World War II, her style being elegant, feminine and dynamic.

This hard to get documentary was probably made in the 1970s. It was uploaded to the YouTube by Art of East and West.

Dear Lennart,
thank you so much for the 'holiday cinema'. I have loved all three so far. I am so impressed by your research skills. Undoubtedly at the present time it gets dark early in Oslo so you have more indoor time to spend at the computer. Best wishes for a happy New Year.
