Item Description

This is a beautifully simple vintage (antique?) ikebana set complete with large cream bowl and kenzan (metal holder). If you are looking for a new hobby that incorporates the beauty and serenity of nature, this may be something that interests you.

"Ikebana is the Japanese art of flower arrangement. It is more than simply putting flowers in a container. It is a disciplined art form in which the arrangement is a living thing where nature and humanity are brought together. It is steeped in the philosophy of developing a closeness with nature. As is true of all other arts, ikebana is creative expression within certain rules of construction. Its materials are living branches, leaves, grasses, and blossoms. Its heart is the beauty resulting from color combinations, natural shapes, graceful lines, and the meaning latent in the total form of the arrangement. Ikebana is, therefore, much more than mere floral decoration." ~ikebanahq.org

It measures 13"x9".
