Event description
Our demonstrator is Ikebana artist Naohiro Kasuya who has been practicing ikebana since childhood.

About this Event

Naohiro is the son of the late Iemoto Akihiro Kasuya, the third headmaster of Ichiyo School of Ikebana and his teacher. In January 2019, Naohiro became the fourth headmaster of the Ichiyo School of Ikebana, Tokyo, Japan.

Iemoto Naohiro has performed in solo-exhibitions, Ikebana exhibitions and live performances in Japan and throughout the world during his tenure as Iemoto Designate. His works have been featured in movies and TV dramas and he has collaborated with artists from other fields. His workshops and live performances have taken place in Belgium, Singapore, France, Australia, India, United States, China, New Zealand, South Africa, and Ukraine. Also, he serves as Director of the Japan Ikebana Arts Association and is a Counselor of the Ikebana Association.

Now as Iemoto, he continues to hone his personal interpretation by creating arrangements that provide balance and tension while allowing the materials to determine their true beauty. His work gives the onlooker a wider view of nature by filling a room, stage, window or in setting up a sophisticated arrangement with bamboo.

Iemoto Naohiro is seeking to raise awareness of Japanese culture and further develop the “art of flower arrangement” to pass the culture of Ikebana to future generations.

The Ichiyo School of Ikebana was founded in 1937 and specializes in combining materials through a natural balance of their weights, rather than by fastening the materials down with a kenzan or komi. Through balancing the materials, the materials and containers come together into a mutually cooperative placement.
