Ikibana is the
traditional Japanese art of flower arranging, which expresses
the philosophy of “ less is more” by using few items in the
arrangement and following design concepts of the completed
arrangement having its outline follow a basic geometric shape;
most often a triangle. To
accomplish that end, the elements of the arrangement are
typically secured to a “pin frog” which has been attached to
the bottom of a shallow container.
Both Ikibanas offered are slab constructed and serve
their purpose functionally and artistically. The square-dish
ikebana comes with a 1” pin frog and the long-curved ikebana
comes with a 2” pin frog secured in place.
Only a small amount of water is required to maintain
freshness of the floral elements.
