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.

Hawaiian Kou or Polynesian Kou is the prime ancient wood that was cherished by the Hawaiians in their culture. All food bowls were made of Kou and every old Hawaiian home along the Ocean front had Kou trees. Today there is a revival in the planting of Kou trees as a small invasive moth many years ago almost wiped out the Kou forests. today Kou is being planted along streets and in shopping centers to bring back this cherished tree. Unfortunately there are very few large Kou trees remaining and until the new plantings develop in twenty to fifty years there will not be any large turnings like you see in old Hawaiian pictures of the Monarchy.

This 15" by 8" by 2" high Kou Piece of wood was cut to show off the white sap color and well as the dark brown to black heart wood of the piece that is surrounded all around by the natural edge of the tree branch . This Dark Brown to black is outline and shown off by the white sap wood color that surrounds the heartwood. It has a Copper Antique Colored Aluminum Water Holding cup with a 32mm Kenzan attached to the bottom to hold flowers and water. The Dried Eucalyptus Leaves of green and purple are used in this setting instead of fresh flowers to give you and idea of what kind of arrangements can be used.

This piece differs from the three other Ikebana Vases I listed today as it stands on two legs and is not a solid block like the others. It also was free formed by myself with the use of my bandsaw and orbital sanders to provide a natural piece of practical art used for flower arrangements. The Kou piece is finished with a Precatalyzed lacquer finish so it won't spot with spilled water. The bottom is signed and dated by myself on the bottom.



It weighs about 5 pounds and will be shipped by US priority mail Box to your destination in the USA.

If you do not like the Ikebana Vase upon receipt you may return it for a no questions asked refund of your purchase price upon return of vase with shipping paid by you. If you need ore pictures please let me know and I will take a few more fr you, also feel free to ask any specific questions you might have.

The Flowers in the pictures are not included in the sale as I'm sure you can find much better flowers in your yard.



Feel free to ask any and all questions you have about the product or woodworking in general.
