2 7/8"Black Round Cup Ikebana Kenzans,krc23 A kenzan, also called spiky frog, is a specific device used in the Japanese art of flower arrangement ikebana for fixing the flowers in the container. It consists of a heavy lead plate with erected brass needles where the stipes are fixed. - The name kenzan (剣山) literally means sword mountain. The kenzan has been introduced with the moribana style of ikebana, sometimes call "frogs" used to hold flower stems in place in Ikebana pots.

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 type of container, including platters, vases, cups, and even wine glasses to create your arrangement.

- The goal 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).
