Ikebana (Japanese flower arranging) photos

This past Saturday, the Seattle Branch of the Sogetsu School of Ikebana was at the Burke Museum demonstrating Ikebana, or the Japanese art of flower arrangement. These photos from the afternoon show off some of the beautiful work done by Aiko Ii, who has been teaching Ikebana in Seattle since 1956. A representative from the local Japanese Consulate were also here most of the day, watching the demonstrations.
