Murashido vase by Yashima Boshu (1925 - 2001). Boshu was a metal artist from Takaoka City in Toyama Prefecture. He was a student of the Living National Treasure, Katori Masahiko (1899-1988) and has received a number of awards for his works at the exhibition Nihon Kogei-kai, Nitten show and others.

Murashido is a technique achieved by dipping the hot bronze in oil immediately after firing and then smoking with rice straw. This is a masterpiece of heavy bronze and a wonderful patina of colors.

This Kabin (vase), is ideal for the beautiful Japanese minimalistic Ikebana decoration. In ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arranging, blossoms, branches, leaves, and stems find new life as materials for artmaking. In contrast to the western habits of casually placing flowers in a vase, ikebana aims to bring out the inner qualities of flowers and other live materials and express emotion. Ikebana is influenced by Buddhist ideals of minimalism.
