Most of these new vases have been inspired by the proportions of Ikebana flower arrangement. Now I have not personally studied this art form but a friend who practises it, suggested that I look into these proportions when arranging the 3 copper flowers around the plastic test tube.
Ikebana comes out of the Buddhist practice. The flower arrangements employ 3 lines as the basis of the design - the longest line, Ten meaning Heaven, the mid length line Jin, meaning human and the shortest line Chi meaning earth. The length of these lines follow a ratio of 1 : 1.6 in relation to the vase and each other.
These wall vases are available at Con Brio, Paper Based and Rainy Days.
