Description

Since its origins in the sixth-century, ikebana has been as much a philosophy as an art, with its roots in Zen Buddhism and a reverence for nature. Over hundreds of years it has developed a complex set of unwritten rules, that take a lifetime to master. But in recent years the distinctive look of ikebana – with its love of the asymmetric shapes to be found in nature and its willingness to embrace simple, natural materials – has found a new audience and opened the eyes of a generation of artists to a new way of working with flowers.

This book showcases a selection of this new wave of floral artists. The authors Victoria Gaiger and Tom Loxley – the editors of the award-winning rakesprogress, the UK’s leading independent magazine about the art of gardens, plants and flowers – have talked to the most exciting florists working today about their art and inspiration. It includes an introduction to the history and evolution of Japanese floral art and an illustrated glossary of flowers and plants.
