Tsuge Ikebana: Smooth Calabash (F)

Product Number: 002-623-3033

We've seen a variety of shapes come out of the Fukuda workshop, but the Calabash has been somewhat of a rarity. Those that we have seen have normally sported a signature Danish flowing profile. While this this Ikebana still maintains some of the school's aesthetic, it is much more compact. Powerful, upright, its oval bowl features a dual bevel at the rim and a delicate taper that emphasizes its broad shoulders. The transition is much more angled as well, further augmented by a slight spur at the heel. Its shank is neither tapered nor flared; short and straight past the transition, it ends abruptly in a crisp, clean, yet barely noticeable bevel. Of course, its jet-black stem bears the rest of the visual weight — completing the composition with poise and elegant minimalism. The grain is simply remarkable with flame leaping up along the flanks and front and a spectacular display of birdseye along the rim. With such a work of art in my hand, I wouldn't be surprised at all to find myself hours later still enjoying private contemplation and a bowl of my favorite blend.
