Black is one of the basic colours of ikebana flower containers. A shiny kenzan in a black container would be a distraction and draw attention away from the real focal point of an arrangement. It is something that one would rather not see! For a discriminating ikebanista, obscuring the shiny kenzan used in a black container could be quite the challenge!
You can put the covering pebbles aside... Say hello to the black kenzan!
It is a steel kenzan that is stained black by ionic bonding. The tone is smooth and uniform.
It "disappears" inside the black container!
Hardly noticeable! Don't you just love it? :-)
It's that little bit of extra detail that could sometimes spell the difference between a so-so and an outstanding arrangement!
Add the black kenzan to your ikebana arsenal!
