Sogetsu -- Material and Space


Ikebana by Monique

The slim volumes of the Sogetsu Textbooks contain text and images, of course, but for the Sogetsu ikebana student they are a touchstone and great source of inspiration.  Monique, a student at Atelier Kadõ, is currently working from Textbook 4, Material and Space. The challenge is to make an arrangement using only leaves. She looked a little wistfully at the big pink tulips on the “beginner’s table” but kept her focus and created these two lovely and successful arrangements with skill, heart, artistry…
and indeed, just leaves.


Ikebana by Monique


Leaves are proof of a plant's dimensionality.
