The Japanese Art of Ikebana became a favorite pastime for me several years ago and as a woodworker I enjoyed making Ikebana Vases and /or Ikebana Stands. Being fortunate enough to live in Hawaii I have been surrounded by beautiful wood and between the two loves I started making these Ikebana Vases.

I soon found that I could not find the water holding container that I needed to fit my wood art pieces and also take care of the flower arrangements. I then went through the process of developing several types of "Water Holding Kenzan " that would best fit my work. The Kenzan I have for sale here are one of the types of Kenzan that I came up with. After many years of showing my Ikebana Stands in various shows in Hawaii people began to ask for my kenzan so they could make their own flower holding arrangements. So here is one of the easiest to use kenzan that I sell.

Each individual cup is made of Aluminum and is tapered in design with an outside diameter of just over 1 7/8" at the top and tapers down to about 1 5/8" at the bottom. The cup is about one and a quarter inch deep. Each cup has a pin frog ( Kenzan) attached to the bottom of the cup made out of Stainless Steel Pins set in a lead zinc base. The cup is painted a flat black color which is sort of a traditional Ikebana color. I also have these same Kenzan in an Antique Copper Color .

Without a doubt these are the best Water Holding Kenzan you can find on the market.

Woodworkers use these by creating a wooden Ikebana vase (like the last picture) and drill a 1 7/8" inch hole that will hold the sides of the tapered Kenzan without it falling through the hole. This can be seen in the last picture.

Pottery people use my Kenzan as they are water proof and don't leak so they don't have to seal there clay art work to be waterproof.

NOTE : The Koa Ikebana Vases in the pictures are not included in this sale !

Frequently Asked Questions

Why don't you ship outside of the USA ?

I will consider and have shipped to other Countries but only after we agree on prices and shipping. This must be done through the Convo system here on Etsy and is not available for all items due to the weight and shipping restrictions on some of my items.

I will however ship to friends or relatives of customers who are located in the USA and then they can make shipping arrangements to the customers location overseas.

I love the size and weight. Perfect for adding an accent flower here and there.

Simple, small, and nicely weighted.

Well made. Exactly what I wanted.

The quality is fine and the item matched the description. I wish I had waited for the availability of the copper color, which would have been more pleasing with my art project.
