Ikebana Vases and Bowls
The Art of Japanese Flower Arrangements

Ikebana is the art of beautifully arranging cut flowers,
leaves and stems in vases and bowls that evolved in
Japan over seven centuries.

The choice of what plants to arrange is guided by the
desire to create harmony between flower, container
and the surrounding environment.
Unlike western floral arrangements, Ikebana uses as
few stems and leaves as possible in composing elegant
contours that highlight the natural beauty of flowers.

The most basic Ikebana arrangements are the
"Upright Styles" which uses shallow containers
with pin frogs or "kenzans" to secure the plants
in simple but beautiful arrangements.

  All Ikebana Vases and Bowls have stainless steel pin frogs attached.
