Once neglected in the West, Japanese basketry now claims a loyal following among art lovers, collectors, and craftspeople in the United States and Europe. This book acknowledges this growing interest by presenting a stunning array of the best baskets to come out of Japan in the last 150 years. The authors — Japanese experts in the field — have selected superbly examples from private and museum collections throughout the world. They focus on the breathtaking works by the masters of the traditional form — Rokansai, Shokosai, and Chikuusai — as well as pieces of the leading contemporary artists, whose groundbreaking sculpture efforts are attracting ever-greater attention from the international art community.

Japanese Bamboo Baskets frames the pieces in a wealth of original materials, and interviews with top artists, a pair of essays, and an extensive photo-catalogue of weaving patterns rounding out this ambitious volume. Book Condition: New and in flawless, excellent condition with its original dust jacket and shrink wrap.
