Miniature porcelain vases.

Miniature ikebana is a style developed by Kasumi Teshigahara, the second iemoto of the Sogetsu school, in the 1960s and 70s. They are often presented in groups, as in this ensemble of five small porcelain vases. The fun thing with miniatures is that you can present details of flowers and leaves, and make them stand out in unexpected ways. They open our eyes to the small joys in life.

Oh, I love miniature arrangements too. They showcase the beauty, character and elegance of the individual stems and blooms. And it's fun to see how the vases compliment the flowers-- or the flowers compliment the vases. -Great use of leftover flowers too.
