Miniature ikebana facinates me, it seem so simple but it is hard to do. It takes skill to make something so small look so good. I’m alsways on the hunt for small containers to work with, little vases and bottles of all sorts, they just fuel my desire to make these delicate gems. The late Kasumi Teshigahara, who was Iemoto of the Sogetsu School , really established minature creations of ikebana as part of her personal style (and in my opinion was a master at it). I created my own miniature works today, three separate arrangments and photographed them one at a time. I do however think they really should be done in sets, like a small collection to be admired. They’re fun to do and require just a few well chosen materials.
