In The Window: Alex McKenzie Glass - March
Inspired by floral design and arrangements, I design and make collections that deliver visual harmony between flower and object, questioning the way we place and view blooms. Ikebana is the Japanese art of flower arranging and for some it is seen as a ‘highly personal form of expression’. Within Ikebana there must be balance and proportion of the flower in the vase, the vase to its surroundings and in both colour and line.
