Florals as Sculpture: Taught by Saree Silverman at POMKT
June 28 @ 3:00
This class is 1.5 hrs

Ikebana is the Japanese art of floral arranging.  Imbued with buddhist philosophy, this art is practiced as a meditation.  More than simply putting flowers in a container, ikebana is a disciplined art form in which nature and humanity are brought together. Contrary to the idea of large multicolored arrangement of blossoms, ikebana puts emphasis on minimalism by focusing on shape, line, and form. The artist's intention behind each arrangement is shown through a piece's color combinations, natural shapes, graceful lines, and the implied meaning of the arrangement. 

A little about Saree, our amazing instructor:

Saree Silverman comes to Chattanooga by way of San Francisco, and we are so honored to have her talent in our beautiful city. Saree has become a fast friend of POMKT with her inspiring creativity and enthusiasm for the arts and exploring new ways to create work using different mediums. The artistry of floral arranging is a class that explores not just creating simple arrangements, but looking at each piece as an art project.

From the artist:

“As an artist my work is primarily inspired by nature. More specifically, I am interested in the idea of harmonious systems. Theories of collective behavior, emergence, stigmergy and swarm intelligence continue to inform my work.

 The work itself is process based and intuitive.  Whether it’s a drawing made up of thousands of tiny marks or a large scale installation, one mark on the page or manipulation of the material leads to another and another until a larger system is formed. Thereby. leading to an intriguing formal or conceptual outcome.

 To put it simply, however, my work is about re-discovering wonder - being curious, enchanted and awed by the beauty and complexity of the world. And the art itself is about sharing that fascination.”
