Tsuge Ikebana: Smooth Acorn (F)

Product Number: 002-623-3031

It’s just a personal quirk. Whenever I see a description, wherein a writer will spot a small ridge, line or curve which reminds them of Denmark or (worse) a simple shift away from a regional aesthetic, and then declare a shape to be “Danish inspired” – well, I want to pimp-slap them. If (say) Dunhill incorporated a tiny band of Tsuishu on a 4103, would that writer declare it to be “Satou-inspired?” I, for one, would hope not.

This downright voluptuous Ikebana F Grade bent Acorn presents a both a heavier emphasis on the bowl, as well as a subtle compression on the horizontal axis. In its totality, while I have never seen its likes in an Ikebana before, I can’t say that I’m not enjoying it immensely. Different from the Ikebana shaping norm doesn’t mean Danish (and it would be disingenuous for me to build a case for it being so, due to... umm... I dunno – a Pear like bowl?). There is something both attractive and compelling about the prominent upswing of the bowl and the more muted flare of the shank, and that saddle-style stem is more than a smart choice, I would think of it as mandatory; a tapered stem of similar figure would deprive the shape of a considerable amount of grace and dexterity.
