Reaching for the Skies

Ikebana arrangements are traditionally divided into two main categories: Arrangements with a strong upright growing form, and arrangements with a slanting more windswept design. These two groups are embodying different energies in plants as well as different ways of relating to the circumstances surrounding us.

The two categories of energy can also be expressed in freestyle ikebana. These two arrangements are examples of naturalistic designs stretching upwards, reaching for the skies.
