This ikebana vase has a deep black matte glaze and its traditional appearance makes it one of our best sellers. These are also known as ‘kenzan vases’ because there are kenzans (pin frogs) attached inside each cup. We throw these on the wheel before glazing and firing.
6-1/2″ W x 2″H. Black three-ounce pincup provides a stable base. Pins (also known as kenzans) and cups are made in the United States.
