Ikebana Equipment

Hasami (clippers or scissors) are used to cut flowers and stems to their desired lengths. Although the way stems are cut depends on the type of plant and arrangement, most cuts are made at an angle. This makes them easier to secure in the vase and kenzan and makes the area for drawing water larger.

Kabin Tall vase used in making heika arrangements. Crosspieces are used to secure stems at three points. (Left photo)


Utsuwa Low, shallow container for moribana. A kenzan is used to secure the stems and flowers.(Right Photo)

Kenzan A holder with many sharp points about 1 centimeter high into which flowers are inserted so that they are fixed firmly.
