This beautiful and rare piece of carved Paulownia wood retains its rough natural texture with its original copper liners. The artist went through great lengths to depict the nuances of the expressive wood, as seen in the natural texture of the surface, the shaped/cut out portions supporting multiple levels of arrangements, the black lacquering of the edges and on the bottom of the container. It has retained its original wood twig for stabilizing flower arrangements. This is an exceptional piece, supporting creative arrangements by the Ikebana artist.

Vintage Condition: Excellent, original condition with no splitting, cracking or loss of material. “As is”, and retains the original craft/workmanship. Any discoloration, surface wear, or structural damage is noted.

NOTE: “The Way of Flowers” is a delicate, refined practice where nature becomes the foundation of sculptural art pieces known for their simplicity. The Japanese believe that the vessel is key to properly arranging branches, blossoms, and leaves, and the container will strengthen the designer ability to be more liberated to experiment, and be more creative and emotionally expressive with their designs.
