Gingado Charcoal Gray Elliptical Takaoka Copperware Ikebana Flower Vase
Enjoy Ikebana, Japanese-style flower arrangement, with this artistically crafted vase from Gingado.
The surface of this vase is decorated with rings that depict round ripples that can be seen on serene surfaces of water. The charcoal gray color is created by baking acrylic paint on the aluminum surface of the vase. It creates a peaceful ambience and gives a natural texture to the sides and the basin of the vase. Create your own little garden with a pond with this vase and bring a tiny piece of Japan into your home.
This Ikebana vase comes with a "kenzan (metallic flower frog)" to set flowers and greenery. Even for those who are new to Ikebana will be able to make artistic floral arrangements by fixing blooms onto the needles of the small-sized kenzan. Just with a single bloom, this vase can become a delightful addition to a home.
Each piece is handmade using a technique called "sand casting," where metallic bases are made by pouring hot metal into hardened sand molds. This traditional technique has been carried down in Takaoka City, the heartland of cast metal, for over 400 years. The process necessitates tremendous skill that can only be amassed through many years of experience.
This vase is packaged in a stylish black paper box stamped with the Gingado logo. Enjoy the beauty of flowers with this unique Ikebana flower vase at home or send it as a gift.
