A rare shibayama inlaid ‘mille-fleurs’ tsuba of mokko form, each side decorated in the Shibayama style on a silver ground with a dense bouquet of mixed flowers including chrysanthemum, peony, hydrangea and sakura, all skillfully inlaid in stained mother-of-pearl, with elegant cloisonné enamel butterflies among peonies around the seppadai, mokkogata silver mounted mimi

 Japan, meiji period

Another excellent example of historic Ebu-Arts in action! Each tiny flower had to be carefully crafted from individually shells before being inlaid together into this tsuba (sword guard).

This Meissen Axe by Jen Ray, made in collaboration with Meissen Porcelain is another great example of Ebu-Arts - each individual flower a work of art on its own, combined to create a larger compilation. The juxtaposition of flora (the natural) with the harshness of the axe (a man-made weapon designed to cut down the natural world) is a stunning concept!

"Early to Bed, Early to Boogie," is a beautiful collage of carefully cut prints of flora, mountains, sky and some architecture for a surreal landscape of repeating, fragmented imagery. A gorgeous take on Ebu-Arts.

c.1970 - Manhattan Jeweler, Daniel Webb’s, Chinese Dragon Pin
18k gold, platinum, diamond, enamel, ruby

Another brilliant example of Ebu-Arts as jewelry: each segment of this gorgeous dragon had to be carefully cut and shaped: each a small work of art unto themselves, yet combined, they create a magnificent Ebu-Arts dragon!
