Event Flower Arrangements in Japan Town, San Francisco

"Edo shigusa" (The manner of merchants) lecture took place at Kabuki Hotel on August 4th, 2009. I was invited by Piazza Trading Co. in Japan to decorate the sakura lounge room. As you may have guessed, I designed all flower arrangements with a Japanese theme. Technique and design emphasis are focussed on line, woven leave techniques, and spacial arrangement of flowers ( called "ma" in Japan ) These designs are not strictly Ikebana, but rather contemporary floral design.
