Yuko Takagi's refined floral creations once again demonstrate how Japan rightly stands synonymous with elegance and minimalism. The delicacy of Takagi's works, arranged with precision and care, showcase the same aesthetics as traditional Ikebana. Takagi designs impeccable, timeless masterpieces showing the flowers stripped down to their essence, humble and frill free. After studying floral design with Jane Packer and at Hana-Ami Gestaltung Schule in Tokyo, Yuko Takagi honed her craft to perfection taking several international master classes and learning from the great masters of the art, amongst them, Gregor Lersch. Yuko Takagi founded and successfully runs her own floral design school and travels the world to give demonstartions and workshops. International recognition came when Takagi won several prestigious floral design contests. This monograph collects the exceptional works and illustrates the vision of this flag bearer of Japanese aesthetics.
