Ikebana (生け花, "living flowers") is the Japanese art of flower arrangement, also known as kadō (華道, the "way of flowers"). More than simply putting flowers in a container, ikebana is a disciplined art form in which nature and humanity are brought together. Contrary to the idea of floral arrangement as a collection of particolored or multicolored arrangement of blooms, ikebana often emphasizes other areas of the plant, such as its stems and leaves, and draws emphasis toward shape, line, form. Though ikebana is a creative expression, it has certain rules governing its form. The artist's intention behind each arrangement is shown through a piece's color combinations, natural shapes, graceful lines, and the usually implied meaning of the arrangement.
Our ikebana vases are crafted of fine white porcelain clay, individually glazed and then fired at 2,400 degrees to create a finish of unusual luster and luminescence. The pin frog which secures the flower stem is affixed with a permanent silicone adhesive. the prongs of the pin frog pierce the flower stem base, which can help keep blooms fresh for weeks. These vases provide you with a wonderful way of displaying flowers - simple, graceful, and elegant. It is the perfect gift for coffee, kitchen or end tables.
