Living Flowers


Throughout Korea’s 5,000-year history the culture’s love and respect for nature has been based in Chun-Ji-In: the belief that the heavens, the earth and the people are all governed by a great singular power. The roots of Korea’s floristry culture are a deep part of that history as recorded in numerous drawings and writings of the ancient nation that depicted structure, form and design from more than 2,000 years ago. For example, the common use of the three branches that form the basis of many Korean floral design stems from this belief.

However, during the 50 years of invasion, occupation, and war that followed from the 1900s Korean floristry was buried and forgotten. But Im Wha Kong kept the culture of Korean floral design alive through these trying times. She held strong to the culture of Korea, one based in humility and that holds moderation in high esteem and has long guided the larger Asian culture with grace. This is Korean Cocoji.
