Vol. 69: North American Sogetsu Seminar in Los Angeles! (Extra Edition)

It’s already been a month since I returned from Los Angeles…

Thank you for your patience! I can show you pictures from the Iemoto Ikebana Live now!

Most of the audience saw ikebana for the first time not to mention a live ikebana demonstration so I selected “four seasons” as a theme so that they could understand my performance easily.

It started with the summer scene, ending with paper-thin sheets of wood, reminiscent of a dragon, which were added to complete the work!

For the autumn scene, the season's taste was created using fruit-bearing branches.

After going through the winter scene using black-and-white, the creation entered into the spring scene with gentle colors.

Finally, a gorgeous large spring work was completed!


These pictures remind me of the excitement on the stage. It really was a thrilling but enjoyable time!

 

During an overseas business trip with a tight schedule, eating is a pleasure too.

 

In Los Angeles, we can enjoy cuisines from all over the world, but I would like to show these meals that most clearly embody the United States!
