Beautiful 6.25"X6"X1" Agate Stone Flower Holder. Great for your desk at Work. Great for your reception area at Work. Great for your mantel at home - This handcrafted natural stone vase is designed in the tradition of the ancient art of flower arranging called Ikebana. It is made from one of the most beautiful and unique stones on Earth, Agate. Agate is a semi-precious stone made up of crypto-crystalline quartz, or (Chalcedony). This agate is from Brazil where many of the finest agates in world form. It occures in volcanic stone (basalt), when air bubbles trapped in the stone are replace by Silica-bearing Groundwater which has seeped in over thousands of years, filled the hollow space, and eventually crystallized. It is the most visually diverse of all crystal forms, certainly the most colorful. No two are ever exactly alike. Each Agate is hand picked for its unique pattern and color ant's ability to withstand the rigors of being cut and polished. Our wish is to create a unique vase that portrays a true sense of balance and symmetry, and combined with the natural beauty of flowers, a sense of harmony. Too create a serene Ambiance with one or two fresh flowers and shoots, or even a dried ensemble. To keep flowers fresh longer, add a small drop of bleach to prevent bacteria inside the vase. Fill water level to top of pins. To clean surface, dust with a damp cloth, or use any glass cleaner. - Ikebana is an ancient Japanese art form of arranging living flowers. A minimal form of design, ikebana encompasses the idea of bringing nature indoors with living floral art. Though flexible in its execution, there are a few guidelines to follow for classic ikebana design: You can use any size of container to create your arrangement. - Ikebana as an art form - Ikebana (ee-kay-bah-nah) is the art of Japanese flower arranging. The object is simply to create something of beauty for the delight of others and, in so doing, improve yourself. The artist sees it as a discipline of the inner spirit for the ultimate purification of the mind and heart. No judging of the work is conducted. Dating back to the 15th Century, this art form reflects three fundamental characteristics of Japanese thinking: an innate love of nature, an abiding love of line, and an instinctive love of symbolism. For the Japanese, flowers signify communion with the heart of nature. Through the centuries, ikebana has grown to incorporate 23 leading schools. The first, Ikenobo (15th Century), advocates using the natural bend of branches. This school, together with Sogetsu, Ohara and Misho would be considered the leading schools. The Sogetsu School has emerged as an exemplary contemporary school whose arrangements fit seamlessly in today's modern and traditional d/cor. The goal of your arrangement is to create three levels of flowers -- high, medium and low. The highest point should equal twice the width of your container, plus twice the height. The medium level is approximately 3/4 of the highest point, and the lowest point is 3/4 the height of the medium level. Asymmetry and the use of empty space is an essential feature to composition, so be sure not to clutter the arrangement with too many items. You can use any type of flower or branch to create your arrangement. But you should never use four of the same flower or branch in a single arrangement. The tools for the art include a Kenzan (pin frog), Hasami (clippers or scissors without a spring grip), and Hana (fresh flowers). Everything but the fresh flowers are available at Hollow Creek Bonsai.
