Kimiko Ikeda from Englewood Florida will be selling many of her unique Ikebana containers at our luncheon. Below are a few examples of her work.
From 1970 to1986, Kimiko worked at designer and textile converter firms and design studios. As of 1987, Kimiko Ikeda Designs Brand were licensed in bedding fabric, wallpaper, dinnerwares, paper goods, journals, gift items, also other miscellaneous home furnishing products. They were sold through major retail stores such as JC Penny, Bed Bath & Beyond, Home Depot and Fortunoff. Some giftware products were carried by independent stores in Europe & Japan.
Now, Kimiko devotes her creativity to making ceramic sculptures and other three dimensional media using fabric, paper and wires. Many are containers for Ikebana designs.
Unfortunately, due to the corona virus, Kimiko was not able to attend our luncheon. However, she was prepared and had many containers to bring and sell at our luncheon. If you are interested in any of the containers pictured below, please email Kimiko and talk with her about how you can purchase her containers. Her website is also a great place to shop!
