We will hold a refreshing early summer Sogetsu Ikebana Exhibition, featuring “Using vase made by me” .
We look forward to welcoming you all with renewed spirit.

Message from Iemoto Akane Teshigahara

A gift for tomorrow

I am very happy to announce that this year again the early summer Sogetsu exhibition, “flower Sonata”, will be held at Sogetsu Kaikan, following the success of last year’s “Flower Prelude”.

The creative theme of this exhibition is “using vases made by me”, one of the characteristics of Sogetsu Ikebana.
We will pursue the new possibilities in ikebana from using a unique vase created by individual free ideas from your own head.

Let’s consider the plants then give form to the feelings of our hearts, as if delivering a gift for tomorrow. The one and only expressions created with self-made vases will ring out and speak of dreams and hopes for the future.

I dearly hope that such will be our exhibition.

Akane Teshigahara, Iemoto of Sogetsu School
