Note: A special exhibit by Sogetsu Ikebana Hawaii was on display from May 25-31 at Nordsrom, Ala Moana. Sogetsu Ikebana is a sculptural and artistic approach to traditional Japanese floral design. Sogetsu is one of the youngest, most avant-garde and most contemporary in design of the various disciplines of ikebana.
The Sogetsu headquarters in Tökyö recently hosted a series of exhibitions without the use of water. Iemoto (Grandmaster) Akane Teshigahara’s vision was to encourage self-reflection during the coronavirus pandemic through art by asking ourselves What can we do in this situation? What should we do?
