Tsuge Ikebana: Bent Tomato (D)

Product Number: 002-623-4412

Pulling this impossibly charming ‘D’ Grade Ikebana out of the describing tray, I was both surprised and delighted. The reason for the delight is undoubtedly obvious. Master Kazuhiro Fukuda’s art is many things; exacting, fascinating, even epic, but this is the first Fukuda Ikebana that I would classify as downright cute. More so in person than in photographs, the rise of the bowl is suggestive of a benign curiosity, maybe even expectation, and the adorable cheeks of the bowl might even teach a few Danes a thing or two. The surprise is the shape. Tomatoes are quite rare in the Ikebana line; this is only the third of the genre that we have ever received.
