My final alternative to kenzan pinholders in Ikenobo Ikebana

This time I thought I’d get realluy traditional.  But althoiugh traditional, this Ikenobo Ikebana technique is really still very useful today, adn with sme advantages over kenzan pin-holders.

Often we use vases with narrow apertures, for which kenzan ar just not practical, or perhaps just won’t fit. For free style and Nageire w have already covered using twigs, wire and uzumaki, but even they may not do the job we want.  This is especially true when we are arranging Tatehana, the predecessor to rikka, and if you are going to arrange large traditoal rikka, then straw is a must…seriously!

So here’s the video…I hope you’ll enjoy and try this at home.
