Handthrown Mini Vase

Regular price $23.00

This sweet little vase makes for the perfect addition to your cha xi. Chabana (茶花, literally "tea flowers") is a generic term for the arrangement of flowers put together for display in a tea ceremony.   The method of arranging the flowers is according to the nageire, or thrown in, style of flower arranging. In Japan, there is a certain stylistic category of Kado, the "Way of Flowers," specifically related to tea.  This way developed out of Ikebana,which had its origin in early Buddhist flower offerings. One of the common traits we find in Japanese aesthetics is a celebration of the minute, the miniature. These vases lend a perfect accent to the tea ceremony.
