The work of the eight basketmakers in this volume reflects their experience in two cultures. In an insightful essay, Hisako Sekijima describes the manner in which the artists living in the US make deliberate reference to the traditions of Japan in their contemporary work, while those in Japan have skirted the traditional in their pursuit of something new.
