Japanese Bamboo Baskets by Kodan-sha International
Several important works from each of the three generations of Iizukas are shown in this coffee table book.
This is a very beautiful book showing important works of the bamboo craft in Japan from the Meiji era (from 1868), from classic to modern works, with novel pictures. In addition to excellent photographs of top works, the book contains artist interviews, and writings from collectors. Iizuka Mari also wrote an essay about Rokansai and Shokansai.
Rokan-do provided photographs and documents for the publication of the book.


The Shokansai bamboo basket, X҉ HyoretsuamiHanakago which had been displayed with Ikebana flowers in Hotel Okura, was restored to its original beauty.
The work was revived splendidly through the artistry and technique of a skilled bamboo basket artist.
