It has occurred to me that I have this fairly empty blog without any introduction as to who I am and the purpose of this blog. My name is Keith and I am a Sogetsu Ikebana(a form of Japanese flower arranging) student. Right now I am in the 3rd and 4th books of the curriculum.Books 1 and 2 start with basic classic styles, and teach line , mass, form and basic skills. Books 3 and 4 start with more advanced lesssons featuring freestyle designs. These lessons begin to incorporate more personal creative works and expression. Later I may give a brief history of the Sogetsu School, but for now I just want to get some new work loaded up for you to view online.
