The Art of
Japanese culture has always fascinated us. We love how they celebrate life through flowers. This philosophy influences our work, particularly when clients request unique arrangements. Many clients choose specific flowers and arrangement styles. Others want certain colors. We work with everyone to transform their ideas into real art, as displayed in our gallery.
[Ikebana] is a disciplined art form in which the arrangement is a living thing where nature and humanity are brought together. It is steeped in the philosophy of developing a closeness with nature. Its materials are living branches, leaves, grasses, and blossoms. Its heart is the beauty resulting from color combinations, natural shapes, graceful lines, and the meaning latent in the total form of the arrangement. Ikebana International Association
