These ikebana vases are my newest designs for the spring! Approximately 3"H x 5"W. Attached pins (also known as kenzans) are on the interior for securing stems.
Porcelain ikebana vase with shino glaze and brushstrokes. These are also known as 'kenzan vases'. I throw these on the wheel before glazing and firing. Shino glazes can vary, so l encourage you to look at several of my shino vases to see the range in colors and designs. No vase is exactly alike, but basic designs are as seen in photos.
Each vase comes with a lovely card that reads:
"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 a variety of colors and designs, 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!"
