Ikebana artist Liisa Ranka Nurminen held an ikebana course at our glass studio in Riihimäki. Sogetsu Ikebana represents the modern school of thought. The key philosophy is that anyone can practice ikebana anytime, anywhere and using any materials. The course also included a bit about the basics of glass design. Each participant got to design their own ikebana vase. Here master glassblower Kari Alakoski is making one of the unique vases.
