Teal and Blue Ikebana Vase

Add to Wishlist

£25.00

I have designed this handmade ceramic vase to be used in the Japanese art of flower arrangement called Ikebana (meaning ‘arranging flowers’ or ‘making flowers alive’, also known as Kado ‘way of flowers’). The vases used for Ikebana arrangements come in a wide variety of shapes & sizes. They are traditionally considered not only beautiful in form, but also in material and design.

This egg-shaped vase has a gorgeous glaze colour and the intricate carving catches the spirit of waves in motion – an eye-catching and unusual way to display just a few blooms, leaves or grasses.

The vase has been made from strong stoneware clay, the surface has been hand carved with intricate swirling patterns while the clay was still wet, and then decorated with a teal & blue glaze to pick up the patterns.

My ceramic vase comes complete with a ‘flower frog’ or kenzan to help hold the flower or leaf stems in position.

The vase stands 8cm tall and 12cm long, the ‘flower frog’ is 2cm wide.
