A dark bamboo basket offering various plating techniques and a nice contrast between the flat angular bamboo handle and round tamasudare weave of the body signed on the base Chikubisai and enclosed in the original signed wooden box. It is 25 cm diameter, 32 cm tall and is in excellent condition.
Ishida Masaichi (Chikubisai II) was born in Kyoto in 1934, and learned the art of basketry under his father Chikubisai I. His work has been exhibited throughout his long career, garnering more than fifty awards including the Mayors prize at the Kyoto Municipal Bamboo Art Exhibition. He has helped to inspire and foster subsequent generations of bamboo artist from his positions at Seika University and at TASK (the Kyoto Traditional Craft School) where he has taught since its inception.
