A kenzan, also referred to as a flower frog, is a device to support the flower stems in ikebana (Japanese flower arrangements). The name kenzan directly translates as ‘sword mountain’, describing the numerous spikes on the stand which fix flower stems to the vessel. This one is produced in Tsubame-Sanjo, Niigata Prefecture an area renowned for the skills and precision of its metalworking craftspeople. The kenzan has sharp brass prongs which are arranged by hand and then cast with lead to create a weighted bottom for stability and covered with rubber to prevent sliding.
This range was named Hanakatsu (flower arrangement as habitual activity) with the hope that by providing a professional grade, yet easy-to-use, kenzan ikebana would become an accessible and effortless activity.
