We designed these brass frogs to fit our new Ikebana vases, although they also work with other vases and containers including simple Mason jars. Throw out the non-biodegradable floral foam and add frogs to give all kinds of displays stability.
Use the frog with the large single opening to help propagate your favorite cutting or to force a bulb or a branch to bloom (learn how-to in our journal article). Use the version with 3 openings to create simple Ikebana statements or to accommodate thicker stemmed species. Use the frog with the multiple openings to arrange flowers and botanicals.
We prefer the natural beauty of letting brass age gracefully and do not apply a lacquer finish to these. To maintain a shiny finish, wash with soapy water and use a tried and true brass cleaner like Brasso, Barkeeper's Friend or Wrights Brass Polish. The natural (Bloomist preferred) approach is to combine the juice of half a lemon with a teaspoon of baking soda and stir until it becomes a paste. Apply the paste with a soft cloth. If the tarnish is heavy, let the piece sit with the paste on it for 30 minutes. Rinse with warm water and dry. Repeat if necessary.

The brass seed starter elevates seed cultivation from lovely to exquisite.
Beautiful and high quality, this was exactly what I was looking for.
I purchased an Ikebana vase and frog as an anniversary gift for our son and daughter-in-law. They love the vase and the frog makes arranging flowers fun and easy.
That is a such a thoughtful gift! Thank you for allowing Bloomist to take a small part in this momentous occasion!
I first got 2 different ones and loved them so much I ordered another one. Now I want 2 more! Aside from practical use, that touch of brass on top of a vessel is so very beautiful! Nice and heavy and super classy!
The Brass Frogs are a fun way to show off your floral arranging skills!
I purchased the small Ikebana vase, some dried flowers, and two brass frogs. Everything arrived in perfect condition, and the quality of all items is really fantastic. The brass frogs are beautiful and really helped me arrange the dried flowers. This would make a beautiful gift!
Quality is pretty great. It is quite weighty.
