Tea Ceremony & Flower arrangement

© EunYoung Sebazco


Chabana (Tea ceremony flower) is a simple style of arranging seasonal flowers in a flower vase or basket for displaying on Tokonoma. I took this photo from Keisui-An in NYC when I was attending at Hatsugama tea ceremony. Chabana places in front of a hanging scroll. Chabana use only few flowers and little or no filler, and no more than a single flower. Vase gets choose natural material such as bamboo, basket or ceramic. Also, chabana needs to use a a shallow wider dish or tall narrow shape of vase. It is very therapeutic to enjoy the moment to experience another Japanese beauty.
