Kawase Toshiro produces some the finest examples of ikebana. Characterized by extreme minimalism and discipline, ikebana is one of the most intellectual forms of floral “arranging.” It requires that the practitioner intensely study the specimen in order to ascertain how to best emphasize its form. Yet, like all art, at some point the true master must transcend the intellect in order to let the spirit of the piece shine.
