Japanese Bamboo Vase
70jy Ladybug, Jiro Yonezawa, bamboo, glass, kiribako box, 7" x 5" x 5", 2009
Japanese bambo sculptor, Jiro Yonezawa, has been recognized with the Cotsen Prize, a commission from Loewe to work in leather and inclusion in the prestigious Japan Nitten National Fine Arts Exhibit. “Bamboo basketry for me is an expression of detailed precision. These baskets represent a search for the beauty and precision in nature and a way to balance the chaos evident in these times.” Ladybug is compact example of Jiro’s work, paired with a complementary kiribako wooden box.
