Description A miniature bamboo basket woven by Hayakawa Shokosai I (1815-1897) circa 1885, an important example of the work by the artist who is considered as the founding father of Japanese modern bamboo art and the first ever signed his own work thus elevating bamboo weaving from a craft into an art form. The miniature basket was traditionally used during Sencha tea ceremony. It was woven from bamboo (madake) and rattan using a wide range of techniques including hexagonal plaiting, twining, twill plaiting and circular plaiting base. It was signed underneath Shokosai.
Near identical pieces were in Lloyd Cotsen Japanese Bamboo Basket Collection, 2006.3.289.
