1000: Waraku (Kariyazaki)

A modern ikebana master presents a profusion of autumnal flowers and fruits - chrysanthemums and daisies cluster under red maple leaves, while persimmons hang low. And all this to a backdrop of ornate gold-leaf decorated fusuma, the sliding dividing screens.

The title, Waraku, might be loosely translated "Peaceful pleasure".

Kariyazaki's website

Born in Tokyo in 1958, Kariyazaki (his family name) studied in the Sogetsu school of ikebana, or traditional flower arranging, then developed his own style of "space arrangement". He has been responsible for interior decoration at many VIP events, notably the tenth anniversary celebrations of the current Emperor's enthronement, and President Clinton's visit to Tokyo. While running his own studio, he still finds time for frequent TV appearances.
