As the number of Japanese-style rooms and tokonoma (alcove) rooms decreases and the number of hanging scrolls is also decreasing, we devised a “one-piece vase” using surface tears woven in Kyoto as an attempt to use the tear in a more everyday way. By covering a plastic bottle or an empty can, it can be completed as a vase. The motif is based on the flower hairpin of a maiko (apprentice geisha), as is typical of Kyoto, and is cut out in a delicate and graceful outline. Easy to carry, it is a proposal for folding flowers found on a trip or on the road, and for enjoying the beauty of temporary flowers.
