Interview with Saihou Ozono, founder of “HIGEDEBU FLOWERS” and ”衣化花(ikebana)”

How were you introduced to Ikebana?

親先生でもある母(大薗芳雪)の影響。 I was influenced by my mother (housetsu ozono).

Why do you love Ikebana?

日本文化/精神を体現できる点。 We can express the Japanese culture and spirit.

What is the best advice you have received through your ikebana studies? 

美しいだけではなく、メッセージやテーマ、個性が重要。 The message, theme and personality are important. It’s not enough to be only beautiful.

How would you describe your style of Ikebana?

私は「花」だけでなく「枝/木」や「異素材」を融合させた作品が得意です。 I work with not only “flowers” but also “branches/trees” and different materials.

Do you have a favourite material or season? 

雲竜柳/麻がら/スターチス/アンスリウム/藤蔓 Dragon willow/Hemp branch/Statice/Anthurium/Wisteria vine

Do you have any good Ikebana secrets / tips to share?

私は器(陶器/ガラス/人間のモデルでも)に合わせて直線の構図にするか曲線の構図にするかを決めています。 I decide on straight or curved lines for my vessels (ceramic/glass/human also). For the human brain to feel comfortable.

What is ahead in your ikebana future?

私が意識する相手は他の華道家ではなく、世界中のすべてのアーティストだと考えています。日本文化(わびさび/守破離/真副控/空間の拡がり…)を世界に発信し、作品を通して社会や人に貢献できる人を目指します。 I believe that my competitors are not other florists, but all the artists in the world. I want to be a worldwide “artist” who shares Japanese culture (wabsabi/shuhari/shinsoehikae…) with the world.
