Art of Chabana: Flowers for the Tea Ceremony

by Henry Mittwer (Author)

Chabana is a simple arrangement of floral or other plant material traditionally placed in the tokonoma, or alcove, of the room in which the tea ceremony is performed. There are no rules in arranging Chabana, the author tells us, no special measurements or geometric patterns, Rather, the creator of a Chabana must use his imagination and, most of all, a special inspiration from within.

The author gives practical flower arranging guidelines and discusses in length more than 100 flowers that are suitable for Chabana, explaining exactly how they can be used and the most appropriate seasons for their display. The book includes a complete list of plants with names in English, Japanese, and Latin.
