The Kenzan // Floral Frogs
A Kenzan is a traditional FLORAL accessory that is typically paired with a Suiban (shallow container).
They are commonly used in Moribana, a classic style of Ikebana Floral Design.
Kenzan/Floral Frogs come in a variety of shapes and sizes and are used as an anchor to hold flowers in a certain motion or direction.
This design style gravitates towards the minimalist mindset and focuses in on the “less is more” mantra.
Still prevalent today - the floral frog is a staple for many designers. It has also been adapted and applied to many other design styles beyond Ikebana.
