Japanese handcrafted baskets

Mar 28, 2017 | EVENT 

event-japanesehandcraftedbaskets2017

 

Japanese handicrafts made with natural raw materials are an embodiment of appreciation, awe and respect for nature.
They reflect the traditional Japanese satoyama lifestyle that people and nature coexist sustainably. (In a satoyama, people typically forms a community (=sato) with farmlands, on the border of a forest (=yama).
A forest is a resource for their living, being managed sustainably by sato residents.)
 
In such satoyama living, the art of livingware handcrafting has been passed along from generation to generation, producing practical and useful objects.
They provide insights into a lifestyle in harmony with nature.
 
For this exhibition, we sourced handcrafted baskets by visiting local craftspeople in various places from Tohoku region to KyushuIsland.
Each of their work is unique and representative of the regions where they are crafted.Their rustic beauty attracts us.
 
To commemorate the opening of the exhibition, Mr. Shinichi Nakagawara (the winner of the New Works Competition organised by The Japan Folk Crafts Museum in 2015) will give a demonstration of traditional Akebi vine basketwork on 15th and 16th April.
