I was in the mood for contemporary design this week, so that urge is reflected in the three offerings today. While studying the selected the containers, I realized that I had lined them up on the counter in order of increasing size.
The smallest pot is an earthy, stoneware Ikebana base from Japan. It’s perfect for a simple arrangement of late summer blooms.
A medium sized, chunky container from a different artisan, also from Japan is a heavy duty item. I call this arrangement “Gerberas and Green”. The dark toned glaze really brings out the neon orange color of the flowers.
The large, leatherette covered two-piece floor vase lends itself to simplicity. In this case, it holds a jumbo sized Ikebana.
I hope these have given you ideas for your own project, regardless of its size.
