Tsuge Ikebana: Smooth Bent Dublin with Plateau (J)

Product Number: 002-623-4396

While this is a relatively simple, not to mention very sturdy shape compared to many other Ikebanas, I have to say that the Tsuge artisan, who chose it for this particular piece of briar, most definitely did not go wrong. The grain here is just exquisite, and this broad, stout-walled, yet finely balanced provides plenty of canvas for it. And while great flame grain isn't always accompanied by birdseye or plateau to match, in this case it does all come together, with a tight, craggy crown of the latter up top, and a lovely freckling of the former down below, as well as along the upper surface of the broad oval shank.
