‘Flowers are not only beautiful, but they could reflect the passing of time, and how we respond to an ever-changing future. There is beauty not only in an open flower, but also a flower’s bud which holds the energy of life as it opens towards the future. Together with flowers, humans are vital parts of nature and arranging Ikebana expresses this awareness.’ – Tomoko Sempo Yanagi
