Classical Japanese Art

Ikebana or 'the art of flower arrangement' is an ancient floral art form that dates back to the 7th century when flowers were placed at altars. The practice also includes branches, leaves, blossoms, and stems that are artfully arranged to make a distinctive statement. Ikebana is counted as one of the three classical Japanese arts of refinement, along with kōdō for incense appreciation and chadō for tea and the tea ceremony.

Designs by Toula Karanikolopoulos on Instagram

This is just a small grasp of all Toula shows on the elaborate Instagram @toulakaran. She is definitely inspired not only by this Japanese floral art but also by the typical Japanese flowers and leaves. The use of bamboo, fatsia japonica, and magnolia are quite common in her designs. All images (and many more) from Toula Karanikolopoulos on @toulakaran. Read more about Ikenama in the article Ikebana for Beginners.
