Shufunotomo co., ltd In the highly competitive world of Japanese flower arrangement where hundreds of schools and thousands of teachers vie for recognition and the concomitant financial success, the true ikebana artist may sometimes be unacclaimed. But when one does encounter the works of ikebana artists, perhaps in a chance exhibition or a random book, their genius with flowers is gloriously evident. Such an artist is Toshie Yokoi whose original approach to the use of fruits and vegetables as ikebana materials titillates the imagination while delighting the eye. My studies with her - the two of us working alone in her studio with materials I had gathered from garden, field and even the green grocers - were hours of complete satisfaction. May these examples of her work inspire you, to see with her eyes, new possibilities in nature's riches.
