Blossoms Berries Branches

 Inspired by Ikebana the Japanese art of arranging blossoms, branches, leaves and stems to bring out their inner qualities and express emotion.  It began with Sakura - cherry blossoms: delicate and ephemeral flowers, deeply imbued with symbolism and meaning, representing fragility, resilience, beauty and the preciousness of life.  Such attributes sit easily with the principles of wabi sabi.
Then native Irish trees, especially those that blossom or display catkins on bare branches like hazel and willow.  The elegance of Japanese pottery meets the Irish landscape... to create an East West fusion in a subtle and charming way.
