Used for ikebana flower displays, these Kenzan are becoming increasingly popular for western style flower arranging, doing away with foam completely. The brass pins are strong enough for woody material, as well as soft green and grass stems.
The spiky bases hold woody and green stalks, in any position you want. Make criss-cross cuts into the bottom of larger twigs, to stick them in more easily. Lower into water in saucers or dishes, and top up daily.
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 literally means sword mountain.
The mini set includes 4 kenzan , two circular and two square.
