Ikebana Aesthetics

Japan Aesthetics

By the Japanese aesthetic we tend to mean but a set of ancient ideals that include wabi (transient and stark beauty), sabi (the beauty of natural patina and aging), and yûgen (profound grace and subtlety). Wabi and sabi refers to a mindful approach to everyday life.

Imperfect, Impermanent, and Incomplete.

Fukinsei: asymmetry, irregularity; Kanso: simplicity; Koko: basic, weathered; Shizen: without pretense, natural; Yugen: subtly profound grace, not obvious; Datsuzoku: unbounded by convention, free; Seijaku: tranquility, 幽玄, yügen, deep, dim, mysterious, digging change,
