Iemoto Interview My style 31 Guest: Mr Kakinuma Koji

Mr Kakinuma Koji, who was invited as a guest instructor in Sogetsu summer seminar in 2019, is a calligrapher and a modern artist. At the beginning of the interview Iemoto arranged flowers for his two works. They talked about this collaboration and how to create their own world in their works.

【feature article】My Line

Line, color, and mass are the three main elements of ikebana.Among these, Sogetsu places the most value on the lines that you create.My particular lines are for creating more attractive arrangements.Iemoto Akane and eight ikebanists arranged some works with My Line as a theme.

Sogetsu Ikebana Exhibition ‘Flower Prelude’ as seen through sketches

Participants in Sogetsu exhibitions draw sketches, which are taken to be blueprints of their works, before starting arranging the flowers. When drawing sketches, various tools such as coloured pencils, watercolours and computer graphics are used. It is interesting that each sketch seems to reflect each participant’s personality.This time some photos of their sketches, which you do not usually have a chance to see, appear in this article as well as their works based on them.
