Scarlet Leaf Ikebana

2012 Chihuly Workshop Studio Edition

Scarlet Leaf Ikebana

10 x 10 x 6"

The Scarlet Leaf Ikebana is a two-piece composition that illustrates the simple elegance of Chihuly’s Ikebana series.

Patches of silver and gold and opaline spots adorn the amber vessel, establishing an elemental ground for a graceful, coiling leaf. The scarlet leaf, ribbed and touched with streaks of gold, emerges from the vase with a curving equilibrium to rest on a perfectly balanced point. The combination is one of serene rapport.

Additional Insights

Ikebana is a disciplined Japanese floral art with an emphasis on balance, harmony, and form. These beautiful, minimalistic flower arrangements made an impression on Dale Chihuly during his visits to Japan in the 1980s.

Feeling as if he had pushed the scale of his earlier Venetian series as far as possible, Chihuly began experimenting with deeper and broader vessels, stripping them bare of embellishments and adding stems with flowers and leaves. The result was Chihuly’s Ikebana series, echoing the essential aesthetics of traditional ikebana while maintaining the artist’s revolutionary use of color, distinctive lines, and strength of pure form.
