Acknowledgements First, I would like to express my appreciation to Jennifer Lantagne at Tuttle Publishing for giving me this special opportunity. I would also like to extend my warmest thanks to the people who helped me complete this project, especially: Photographer Erich Schrempp, of Schrempp Studio, who took the wonderful photos featured here; Anjeli Flowers, 7643 W. Belmont, Elmwood Park, IL 708-452-9004; and Edward Campbell, for his assistance with writing in English and revising my manuscript. -Keiko Kubo A project like Keiko's Ikebana requires that the composition and lighting be approached as simply and subtly as possible, allowing the arrangements to stand on the page without distraction. Light is a tool that is most powerful when it's wielded with the gentlest touch. You can't improve on a flower, but you can wrap it in light in such a way that it becomes almost luminous. That's what I set out to do in Keiko's Ikebana. -Erich Schrempp Contents Acknowledgements Introduction About Ikebana History of Ikebana Ikebana Today Keiko's Approach Chapter 1: The Basics of Ikebana Containers Tools and Materials Ikebana Techniques Helpful Hints Main Idea Chapter 2: Design Principles Line Volume Accent Other Elements of Design The Process of Making Ikebana Chapter 3: Inspiration Keiko's Ikebana Gallery Chapter 4: 20 Step-by-Step Arrangements Natural Line Arrangement Curved Line Arrangement Vertical Line Arrangement Horizontal Line Arrangement Geometric Line Arrangement/Triangular Lines Manipulated Line Arrangement Sequential Vases Glass Container Arrangement Using Floral Tubes for Mechanics The Basket Container Pruning Design Stacking Design Twisting Design Shredding Design Tying Design Cupped Design Three Basic Ikebana Techniques Rolled Design in Basin Use of Artificial Materials Floating Flowers in Basin About the Author
