Village Voice's Description
Ikebana, the ancient art of Japanese flower arrangement, emphasizes composition as much as color. From her tiny Chawan storefront on Grand Street, Masae Yoshino custom-creates strange and beautiful bouquets that mix bells of Ireland, green-centered daisies and lucky bamboo, or alstramaria with the humble clover Gomphrena globosa (here known by its Japanese name, A Thousand Days of Red). Bring your own vase, whisper your humble budget in her ear and wait for inspiration to strike.
