This porcelain ikebana vase is also known as a ‘kenzan vase’ because there are pins attached inside for securing flowers. The Garden design has a combination glaze that “moves” gracefully, with warmth and character. 6-1/2″ W x 2″H. Black three-ounce pincup provides a stable base and traditional look. Pins (also known as kenzans) and cups are made in the United States.
Each vase comes with a lovely card that says:
“Ikebana Vases and Containers by Porcelain Artist Kathie Kline
Originally a Japanese custom that began during the mid-15th Century, ikebana flower arranging now appeals to Westerners who want to explore new ways of creating arrangements. Approaches to arranging flowers in my containers can vary from playful to formal…whatever suits you!
My kenzan vases come in a variety of colors and deigns, and they’re suitable for traditional bouquets, a single stem, or a combination of stems, stalks, leaves and blooms…Remember to check water levels frequently on all vases and containers!”
