Balance and harmony are core elements of ikebana, a Japanese style of floral arranging. George Saridakis’s ikebana vases capture these characteristics. He uses maple and holly from the Northeast, plus exotic woods from Africa and South America, such as wenge, bubinga, and bloodwood. Pictured here is a holly and ziricote vase ($120). Each vase comes with a metal pin cup into which the flowers are tucked. For a sleek look, choose a vase with its pin cup sitting flush with the wood edge; other models have non-flanged pin cups that stick up above the lip. From Decoratively Sculpted Wood, Groton, Massachusetts. 978-549-1807.
